In collaboration with the National Academy of Medicine, the committee will seek to identify examples drawn from around the world that demonstrate how different professions cope with the stresses of educating health professionals under current health and educational structures, and how adjustments in policies and incentives might move organizations to adopt a more welcoming environment for testing and implementing individual stress-reduction and resilience-building strategies.

Following the workshop, a proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
