All About Resilience
PROGRAM KEYS TO SUCCESS
Over fifty percent of today's physicians in North America suffer from burnout and reduced quality of life. As well as addressing burnout prevention with work-life balance and organizational renewal, we can leverage cutting edge wellness science and current physician experience into advanced programs. The DIAMOND MD Program combines evidence-based medicine and emerging science to boost your resilience on multiple levels. Recover your vitality and recharge your daily life by learning science-based tools for success.
The Neuroscience of Renewal
Advanced neuroimaging & neuroscience research is sourced to give you expert assessment and recommendation. Mitochondria, astrocytes, and more create the framework for your understanding. We help you recharge your neural framework to re-wire authentic passion & purpose, inherent energy for your life and your work, and mastery of your brainwaves to maximize problem-solving. Based in the science of mindfulness, meditation, and psychotherapy, individual sessions are offered to shift your mental state and perceptions to expand opportunities for success.
Sleep & Body Renewal
Sleep, exercise, response to stress, insights from yoga and a mindful physiology, techniques to embody and maintain motivation for change, nature regeneration, and nutritional approaches are applied to re-design your weekly optimal physical baseline.
Mind Body Balance
Individual and group sessions tap you into the wisdom of integrating body and mind. Mindfulness, guided meditations, lifestyle re-design, work life balance goal setting and accountability, motivational interviewing, relational skills based in attachment theory, key communication techniques, and cognitive behavioural therapy are sourced to bring your way of living to next-level success.
