Mindfulness in Medicine

Building and sustaining a culture of health & well-being through mindfulness

Multi-tiered access to learning about mindfulness

Mindfulness in Medicine™ is designed to cultivate and integrate a culture of mindfulness in medical centers, academic communities and other care-focused organizations.

The primary goals of Mindfulness in Medicine™ are to:

  • improve overall patient care
  • strengthen clinician-patient relationships
  • cultivate an internal culture of communication among all levels to improve the delivery of health care to patients and to improve the overall efficiency of organizational operations
  • enhance employee health and wellbeing
  • integrate mindfulness into all phases of relationship-based care

Developed by the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, this first-of-its-kind program is a continuation of our visionary force and global leadership in mindfulness and mind-body medicine. For over thirty-six years, the Center has pioneered the integration of mindfulness meditation and other mindfulness-based approaches into mainstream medicine, healthcare and research.

Mindfulness in Medicine is a structured Educational Suite of programs and courses for patients, employees, staff, medical and behavioral health professionals and clinic start-ups
