2023-2024 Mind-Body Medicine Electives

The Mind Body Medicine electives are primarily intended for Phase 1 students. The Mind Body Medicine course aims to proactively attend to the mental and emotional health needs of medical students through exploration and teaching of self-awareness and mindfulness skills. By developing these skills, students will be better prepared to practice preventative self-care and self-awareness, ultimately improving overall well-being, stress management, and empathy. The sessions will be led by facilitators who have been trained by the Georgetown Mind Body Medicine founders. During each session, students will be introduced to a new mind-body skill and have the opportunity to practice and learn the theory behind its practice. (This elective will earn 2 credits and appear on the transcript, but these will not count towards graduation requirements).
