This award supports the dissemination of outcomes from the Center for Innovation and Leadership in Education (CENTILE) 2015 conference to promote resilience, empathy, and well-being in the health professions. The conference brings together an interprofessional and international group of educators, researchers, practitioners, faculty development leaders, and academic policy makers to present and discuss the best practices and strategies to promote resilience, empathy and well-being, self-awareness and reflection, and to manage stress, reduce burnout and foster professional identity formation in students, residents and fellows, faculty and practitioners across the health professions. The goal of the conference is to create the momentum for a national effort to address the issues that lead to student and resident suicides and the increasing numbers of health professionals who opt to leave the field.
