This session will focus on helping faculty select effective pedagogy and wellness initiatives to improve job satisfaction. The purpose of this session is to help faculty gain a deeper understanding of the link between job satisfaction and stress reduction through effective teaching and overall wellness. An IRB-approved survey was sent to the section on operative dentistry to gauge job satisfaction, stress and wellness. The responses from that survey will drive two expert lectures on instructional pedagogy and health care wellness. These experts will develop toolkits for faculty to improve job satisfaction, physical health, emotional health and spiritual health.

Discuss methods for applying these principles and techniques quickly and efficiently into their classroom or clinical teaching.
