Physician Small Groups: Conversations Among Friends
We know that as a physician, your challenges, joys, losses and wins are unique — and no one understands them better than other physicians. That’s why we created our chapter of Finding Meaning in Medicine.
These intimate, small group gatherings hold space for physicians to come together and share stories, find support and focus on fellowship, cultivating meaningful connections that extend beyond the group and into our practices.
Our small groups meet regularly and encourage safe, non-judgmental and non-competitive interaction among physicians. The group discussions promote support, understanding, insight and a shared connection to our medical calling.
Discussion Group Topics and Guidelines
Finding Meaning in Medicine is a conversation that invites physicians to speak from the heart, physician-to-physician, about personal experiences in their everyday lives that provide access to the deeper meaning of the practice of medicine.
Each meeting is organized around an announced topic. The "price of admission" is a story from your own experience — either personal or professional life — that relates to the topic. Everyone is invited but never required to share a story. Participants are encouraged to respond personally and openly to what they have heard.
