Description
Professionalism and Non-Cognitive Development expands upon the concepts and themes that are introduced in Foundations of Successful Biomedical Career Planning and Development. Students will engage in experiential learning, including mindfulness practices and other evidence-based strategies that cultivate emotional agility, self-determination theory derived motivation, stress coping, meaning making, resilience, compassion, and fulfillment. Students will also engage in small-group discussions, peer mentoring, and written exercises. Course lecture and discussion will be based on research findings from coaching, positive psychology, neuroscience, sociology, philosophical concepts, applied practice, and lived experiences. Course topics will have relevance to burnout prevention, sociocultural medicine, interpersonal communication, and professional identity. Our intention is that students will deepen their understanding of their authentic self and leave the course with knowledge, habits, and perspectives to thrive.
