The year 2020 marked a significant change in the practice of medicine both in the U.S. and globally. The uncertainty and strain of providing care during the pandemic has accelerated burnout and left many medical providers feeling isolated both professionally and personally. Physicians are in need of concrete ways to build community and fellowship to foster relationships with more experienced colleagues and with younger medical students and physicians in training. This will allow them to provide more holistic and effective care for their patients and lead to a stronger sense of fulfillment and meaning in practicing the art of medicine. Attendees will learn how to initiate and maintain vertical relationships with peers and students in training to improve collaboration and understanding across specialties. Attendees will also learn effective communication styles to engage with others of different backgrounds and beliefs. They will engage in interactive workshops that highlight the use of social media for medical communication, planning medical advocacy tailored to their own local community needs, how to engage in medical ethical conversations and state legislation advocacy, and the benefits of networking with physicians that prioritize human dignity in the science and practice of medicine.
