7:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Eric P. Newman Education Center, 320 S. Euclid Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63110


The principal factors of dis-satisfaction across many academic healthcare environments are strikingly similar. As many institutions struggle to improve their workplace environment, the concept is emerging that the goal should be a return of “joy” to our work.

This interdisciplinary symposium will discuss workplace factors previously identified by our faculty and staff as principal causes of dis-satisfaction, and propose potential solutions that have growing evidence for their ability to help bring joy back to our workplace.

Featured Speaker:

Colin P. West, MD, PhD

Professor of Medicine, Medical Education, and Biostatistics
Divisions of General Internal Medicine and Biomedical Statistics and Informatics Departments of Internal Medicine and Health Sciences Research
Mayo Clinic

Other Program Presenters: TBA
