Finding Our Joy as Medical Educators

February 24, 12pm ET

How do we find joy and sustenance in our work as medical educators? How do we measure this, and can we find ways to align our work with these values?


We often discuss our learners. Today we will turn our attention to ourselves as medical educators. We will discuss a qualitative study examining sources of professional joy in medical educators, reviewing facets of qualitative methodology as well as the application of a model rooted in positive psychology.
