Bees, Mindfulness, & Medicine: Exploring Opportunities for Convergence: CANCELLED
What can we learn from bees to help us become better physicians? How can we improve the care we provide patients while developing our ideal practice? How does our practice of self-care contribute to mutually healing relationships with patients? This one-day workshop explores these questions by introducing and experiencing new paradigms that intersect bees, mindfulness-based approaches, and medicine.

UPDATE: We’re excited to announce our Abbotsford-Mission, Coastal, and Indigenous Sites will be joining forces with the UBC Family Practice Residency Program Faculty Development Team. Teacher’s Toolbox is hitting the road! Last year, our 20 preceptors survived a typhoon, juggled raw eggs, and perfected the headstand! We also explored our learning journey, developed a learning plan, discussed how to provide constructive feedback, and how to best incorporate our family in our practice. What will happen this year? What new things will we discover? I can only imagine!
