Event Details

Dear students and trainees,

Staying motivated and productive can be difficult during these challenging times. Many of us are working from home and can only meet with faculty and colleagues via videoconference. Add in caregiving responsibilities, pets, roommates, less than ideal physical workspaces, and oh, the myriad impacts of a global pandemic and systemic racism— and it’s easy to feel stuck in a rut.

While we unfortunately can’t address every challenge you are facing right now, we designed a program to build community and develop skills that will support your well-being and enhance your productivity. The goal is not to illuminate some magical secret to a productive and happy life (there is none), but rather to help you identify what works for you— so that you feel good and work smarter.

We also know that there is a lot of information out there on these topics. The goal of this program is to provide a space to not only discuss these topics, but put them into action! Think of it as a mix between an accountability group and a mini workshop. Each module will consist of two 30-minute sessions, held one week apart. The first week, we will introduce the topic and discuss how to practically implement the concept. When we reconvene the next week, we will debrief, troubleshoot and share ideas. Groups will be kept small so that we can better interact with one another and if necessary, we may open up additional sections based on demand. We will also set up a Microsoft Teams group for each module, so we can stay connected and motivate each other during and after the module.
