OCTOBER 19-21, 2018

 

Being a physician is demanding. Trying to balance a career in medicine with the responsibilities of home and personal life can seem impossible. Safe Harbour is a weekend retreat taking place October 19-21, 2018 focused on rediscovering the joys of being a physician. It’s about taking a step back from life’s everyday stresses to reinvigorate your passion for medicine. At this year's weekend retreat, we will focus on improving satisfaction and efficiency.

 

Safe Harbour is a program of the NLMA Physician Care Network that gives physicians an opportunity to learn techniques and practices that will lead to a fulfilling career and balanced life. The retreat is set amidst the scenic backdrop of Trinity Bay at the world-class Fishers' Loft. The workshops are also open to spouses/partners and the retreat is family-friendly with a number of outdoor excursions and activities from which to choose.

 

Workshops:

 

This year's workshops include:

Beat the Clock: Quick snappers on useful tools and resources for reducing stress in your work day

Awkward Moments: Tips and tricks for dealing with challenging situations physicians often face

Buried Alive: Strategies to dig yourself out and be more effective at work

 

Spouses/partners may register for all workshops at a fee of $100 (includes lunch and a nutritional break).

 

The weekend will include a welcome reception Friday evening, a group dinner Saturday night, and a guided hike of the Skerwink Trail Saturday afternoon (or the option to explore the surrounding area on your own!).
