The American Meditation Institute founder Leonard Perlmutter claims that theoretical physicist Albert Einstein provides an important clue to understanding how physicians and other healthcare providers can prevent and relieve burnout symptoms when he wrote that, “A problem cannot be solved on the level at which it appears; it must be solved on a higher level.” According to Perlmutter, “The daily practice of AMI Meditation and its allied disciplines make it possible to access and employ a ‘higher level’ of intuitive knowledge from the superconscious portion of the mind that can enable individuals to make creative, stress reducing and health affirming lifestyle choices.”

Practical Tools for Burnout Prevention

 

Docs vs. the Public

The American Medical Association and the Mayo Clinic recently conducted a study to determine how physician burnout differs from burnout in the general working population. The study, published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, found that compared with the general U.S. population, physicians worked a median of 10 hours more per week, displayed higher rates of emotional exhaustion and reported lower satisfaction with work-life balance. Though the general population does experience burnout, the changing state of the health care system is clearly driving the dramatic increases in physician burnout.

This course was an absolutely excellent experience––the very best conference I’ve ever attended.
JAY NEWMAN, MD – Towson, MD
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.

This course was excellent and life changing. The knowledge, expertise and compassion of the faculty introduced to me a practice and philosophy fundamentally different from the way allopathic medicine views the mind and body.

STEVEN LEE, MD – New York, ny

“Life changing!  Everyone in every facet of life should experience this.  I’m so grateful for you and your institution and all involved for bringing truth to doctors with love and compassion.  This is a light the world needs to see.”

VI quach, md – new york, ny

“This was a fantastic course!  It was informative.  It had a great mix of theory, science and practical use/practice.  The spectrum of content was also balanced.  Some of the more scientific/study presentations gave me the opportunity to see how I can incorporate this work and information within my practice.”

RG MD, NY

This is the only CME course I’ve ever attended that reminds me that in order to be a better doctor I need to take care of myself.
