60 Minute Seminar
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
As appreciation for holistic admissions methods diversifies the dental student body, explicit promotion of the development of resiliency and collegial environments are essential. Historically, dental institutions build stress-tolerant individuals. This program discusses the importance of teaching resilience to preserve compassion and promote collegiality. A third year dental student and faculty will lead an exploratory discussion highlighting data regarding student resiliency and team building activities that enrich collegiality. Participants will take part in activities designed to spread awareness of challenges to resiliency reported amongst students and how that influences their relationships with their colleagues and delivery of patient-centered care.
