Remote Enhanced Stress Resilience Training (ESRT) During COVID-19

Enhanced Stress Resilience Training (ESRT) is now offered remotely for support during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are now offering our 5-week course in mindfulness-based cognitive training on zoom - to strengthen resilience, manage stress and build skills for navigating uncertainty and discomfort with balance. Each 1-hour class is led by a certified instructor, and followed by 30 minutes of Q&A. Classes are experiential - learning and practicing techniques - with emphasis on application to the daily life and work of surgeons and physicians. You can request a course for your group or join a scheduled course - typically offered in the evening, so partners and families are welcome to join.
