Renee Goodemote MD will share with other healthcare providers how they too can rediscover their love of medicine and life by attending the American Meditation Institute’s 12th annual Heart and Science of Yoga CME Conference October 17-21, 2023 at the Equinox Resort and Spa in Manchester, Vermont. This proprietary, comprehensive training in Yoga Science as Holistic Mind/Body Medicine was recently found in a peer-reviewed clinical study to reduce Burnout and Stress, and is accredited by the American Medical Association for 34 CME credit hours.

Previous conference attendee and 2023 presenter Renee Goodemote MD, is a graduate of the Albany Medical College and currently serves as Medical Director at the Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center. According to Goodemote, “This CME conference on Yoga Science should be a part of all medical education. The entire curriculum, developed by Conference Director Leonard Perlmutter (RamLev), teaches physicians how to skillfully and compassionately move through the day-to-day stresses of patient care by simply turning inward to discover how creative we all can be when we allow the mind to rest and meet its capacity––with one-pointed attention.”

Since 2009, this CME conference has provided physicians a quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education that can prevent and reverse the debilitating causes and effects of physician burnout. Lectures will include: AMI Meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, easy-gentle yoga exercises, Yoga psychology, neuroplasticity, the chakra system as a diagnostic tool, mind function optimization, epigenetics, ayurveda, food as medicine, and lymph system detoxification.

The dedication, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty create a dynamic and interactive experience for all students. Each faculty member is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. In addition to Dr. Goodemote, other distinguished presenters will include Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder; Mark Pettus MD, board certified internist and nephrologist and Director of Medical Education and Population Health of Berkshire Health Systems; Kristin Kaelber MD, PhD, board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics; Anthony Santilli MD, board certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine; Jesse Ritvo MD, Assistant Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry, University of Vermont Health Center; Joshua Zamer, MD, Medical Director for Addiction Medicine at Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center and Chairman of the Department of Family Practice; Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, co-founder and faculty member of The American Meditation Institute; Anita Burock-Stotts, MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Janine Pardo MD, board certified in Internal Medicine, and Gustavo Grodnitzky PhD, Chair of the AMI Psychological Education Committee.

The conference core curriculum has been endorsed by medical pioneers Dean Ornish MD, Larry Dossey MD, and Bernie Siegel MD. According to Psychiatry physician Steven Lee MD, “This course was 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.”
