To help reverse the national trend of physician burnout, The American Meditation Institute's (AMI) tenth annual CME conference will be held on October 23-27, 2018 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled "The Heart and Science of Yoga," this 32 CME curriculum on Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine will offer training in AMI Meditation and Yoga Science to prevent and relieve physician burnout--in part by incorporating the vision of Albert Einstein.
Although Albert Einstein died on April 18, 1955, this world famous theoretical physicist provides an important clue to understanding how today's physicians and other healthcare providers can prevent and relieve burnout symptoms. According to The American Meditation Institute founder Leonard Perlmutter, when Einstein wrote that, "A problem cannot be solved on the level at which it appears; it must be solved on a higher level," it provided physicians with a creative approach to their growing burnout epidemic. "The daily practice of AMI MEDITATION and its allied disciplines of Yoga Science make it possible to access and employ a ‘higher level' of intuitive wisdom from the superconscious portion of the mind," said Perlmutter. "That process can make it possible for all healthcare providers to make creative, stress-reducing and health-affirming lifestyle choices."
According to a microsurvey by InCrowd, a provider of real-time market intelligence to life sciences and healthcare firms, "57% of the primary care and emergency medicine doctors surveyed said they have personally experienced burnout, and an additional 37% of respondents said that while they personally hadn't experienced burnout, they knew others who had."
Board Certified pulmonologist, critical care physician, and conference speaker Anthony Santilli MD, understands the challenge very well––having reversed his own diagnosed condition of burnout through the daily practice of AMI MEDITATION. According to Santilli, "My personal experience is that physicians today are subjected to an unprecedented number of significant stressors: overwork, cumbersome regulation, electronic medical records and coding requirements, medical liability, on-call issues, lack of sleep, politics, and frustrations with the reimbursement structure. By learning to practice Yoga Science and AMI MEDITATION as mind/body medicine, healthcare professionals can improve job satisfaction and work/life balance, while reducing and preventing burnout symptoms of anger, depression, anxiety and exhaustion."
The entire "Heart and Science of Yoga" CME curriculum is a transformative learning experience. It is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers on Yoga Science as mind/body medicine. Topics this year will include a comprehensive overview and instruction on AMI MEDITATION, epigenomics, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, yoga psychology, alleviating trauma and PTSD, resiliency, mind function optimization, food as medicine, Ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification and the chakra system as a diagnostic tool. New this year, dedicated courses on addiction and pain management, a frequent conference discussion topic and growing global issue, have been added to the curriculum.
The dedication, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty create a dynamic and interactive course for their students. Each faculty member is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. Distinguished presenters will include Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder; Mark Pettus MD, Director of Medical Education and Population Health at Berkshire Health Systems; Anthony Santilli MD, board-certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine; Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, PhD, Director of Research for the Kundalini Research Institute, and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School; Susan Lord MD, a private practice holistic physician focusing on prevention and treatment, and former course director for The Center for Mind-Body Medicine's "Food As Medicine" program in Washington, DC; Jesse Ritvo MD, Assistant Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry, University of Vermont Health Center; Renee Rodriguez-Goodemote, MD, Medical Director of the Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center; Joshua Zamer, MD, Medical Director for Addiction Medicine at Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center and Chairman of the Department of Family Practice; Beth Netter MD MT, holistic physician and acupuncturist, Albany, NY; Prashant Kaushik MD, board-certified Rheumatologist; Anita Burock-Stotts, MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Gustavo Grodnitzky PhD, Chair of the AMI Psychological Education Committee; Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, faculty member of The American Meditation Institute, and Lee Albert, NMT, acclaimed neuromuscular therapist and gentle yoga instructor.
Previous conference attendee Janine Pardo MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine from Weston, Massachusetts commented, "This was my second time attending. This conference has been the most influential factor in transforming my life and medical practice. It should be a medical school requirement." Melinda Darling MD, a pediatrician from Maryland agrees. "This conference was very helpful for burnt out physicians who need healing. It was an excellent program."
Numerous medical pioneers and healthcare professionals such as Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD have also endorsed AMI's core curriculum.
