VTMED 6750 - The Healer’s Art

Spring. 0.5 credits. S-U grades only.

Enrollment limited to: -first, -second and –third year veterinary students.

J. Morrisey, M. Miller and R. De Matos.

Compassion fatigue in veterinary medicine has effected a broad search for etiologies and effective educational interventions. Recent research suggests that finding personal meaning in ones’ daily work is highly correlated with diminished compassion fatigue (lack of meaning is considered a main cause of compassion fatigue). The Healer’s Art is a nationally recognized curriculum that provides opportunities to explore meaning and helps participants to develop self-care and to establish a foundation for resilience. Through an interactive, process-based program, participants can create a supportive and judgment-free community, allowing inquiry between DVM students and graduate DVM facilitators. This course is scheduled in the evening to prevent conflict with other courses and to allow a more relaxed and stress free time for self-reflection, discovery and sharing.
