Over the course of their training, medical students face several key inflection points.  These transitions often create physical and psychological strain that can hamper performance and increase the risk of burnout.  The ART in Medicine curriculum seeks to measure baseline resilience and coping strategies, provide curriculum to address key pillars of psychological and physical resilience, and track metrics over time to hone the program.  ART in Medicine places an emphasis on a triad of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that can be integrated into daily life so that the instruction becomes part of a student’s routine.
