A Symposium, “Enhancing Physician Resilience” with national expert J. Bryan Sexton will be held on June 7, 2012, from 7:30AM to 12:30PM at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, Burnsville, MN. The symposium will use experiential learning to raise and address issues about physician wellbeing, including resilience and burnout, practicing safe stress, fatigue management, mindfulness and wellness, dealing with difficult colleagues and coping with change.
In conjunction with the symposium, a world premier theatrical reading of “Play What’s Not There” written by William Thomas, MD, will be staged at the Guthrie Theater on June 6 and 7, 2012 at 7:30 PM and June 8, 2012 at 10:00 AM. Due to demand, an additional reading on June 7 at 1:00 PM has been added. The play presents five physicians at various stages of their careers, living with stress, family life, word demands, dreams and destiny. The play will be professionally performed, and includes a post-play facilitated discussion with the playwright.
