Contemplative Medicine Fellowship 2024-2025

Commencing July 27th, 2024



Over more than a decade of engagement in healthcare environments, we have heard again and again from clinicians that those providing care must receive the training and support needed to enhance resilience, nurture compassion, and sustain well-being on both sides of the healthcare equation, and a contemplative approach to care is critical in addressing these gaps.


Building on our experience and expertise in Contemplative Care education and training, the Zen Center is launching the Contemplative Medicine Fellowship —a yearlong program specifically developed for practicing physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Unlike most traditional fellowships, the fellowship clinical site is the clinician’s own place of practice, and the fellowship is designed to support existing clinical responsibilities.


Fellows learn to put into practice the contemplative approach to care which:


  • Benefits patients by improving clinical encounters and relationships with HCPs providing a more intimate and nourishing experience
  • Benefits physicians and nurse practitioners by helping to reduce individual and team burnout and stress while promoting resilience and new meaning for HCPs
  • Benefits health care systems by promoting behaviors that support improved care delivery, productive and easeful relationships among staff, reduced turnover, and cost reduction
