Spend time in Tucson at three distinct residential weeks with like-minded professionals, getting hands-on experience


I found the sessions on motivational interviewing, mindfulness, recognizing physician burnout, hypnosis, and ceremony in medicine to be the most meaningful, well-presented, and enjoyable sessions. Also, one of the most helpful things to me was to meet and recognize the presence of so many other healthcare providers who have a similar interest and heart for medicine. The creation of this community has been so important and rewarding for me.

Residential Week 1

The Art of Healing: The Clinical Practice of Integrative Medicine

"The community, fellowship, support, camaraderie, spending time with like-minded providers. The opening activity and closing ceremony were infinitely meaningful and powerful. All of the sessions were helpful. It is impossible to choose 1, 2 or even 3 most helpful because they were all helpful in different ways."

Sample Sessions:

Additional topics covered:

  • Clinician Health and Wellness
  • Pain Management in Practice

I feel getting to know my colleagues, having a chance to meet with staff, and the sense of community that I got from this experience was of utmost value to me. Meeting people from diverse backgrounds and some of the sharing of our experiences was very helpful.
