Bouncing Back: The Science of Resiliency

April 28, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Symposium on the Science of Learning:
Bouncing Back: The Science of Resiliency

Within medicine today, we hear increasingly about burnout and depression among our students, trainees and practicing physicians. There have been reports of increasing numbers of suicides. All of this has occurred despite the implementation of duty hours and more attention to safe learning environments. In this context, the 2016 Symposium on the Science of Learning will focus on the way the brain responds to stress and the impact of research findings on our understanding of the behavioral responses which enhance or degrade our ability to deal with stress. We will examine the development of resilience in the face of failure or adversity while exploring ways in which faculty can support students to aspire to high achievement.
