  • Evaluating the Efficacy of MCSOM-AZ Student Wellness Curriculum Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    The purposes of this study are to assess the effectiveness of the existing MCSOM-AZ Student Wellness Curriculum by correlating individual attendance of the Student Wellness Curriculum with participant scores on the Perceived Stress Scale and WHO (Five) Well-Being Index; to identify successful components of the existing MCSOM-AZ Student Wellness Curriculum to be adopted by future classes, MCSOM Rochester and Jacksonville campuses, and other medical school programs; and to understand medical students’ attitudes toward wellness, academics, and career-related success in order to adapt the Student Wellness Curriculum to engage more students.

  • Fostering Resilience: An Intervention for Women Physicians at Risk for Burnout Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.

    Physicians in general are at risk for burnout, and this risk is heightened among women, particularly mothers. In a randomized design, central hypotheses in this study are that mothers who attend our 12-week Relational Psychotherapy Mothers Group (RPMG) intervention will show significantly greater decreases in stress, depression, burnout, and associated risk biomarker indices, as compared to comparison controls (who would meet in unstructured gatherings, for an hour a week for 12 weeks). Additionally the investigators hypothesize that the gains would be maintained three months after the intervention is completed.

  • Mindfulness Based Resilience Training for Employees at Mayo Clinic (MBRT) Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    The investigators aim to evaluate the Mindfulness Based Resilience Training (MBRT) intervention for Mayo Clinic employees in order to provide evidence for improved ability to cope with stress and decreased work-related burnout and stress-related symptoms as a result of MBRT training. In addition, the investigators aim to compare the effects of MBRT + smartphone sleep feedback, a smartphone resilience intervention + smartphone sleep feedback, or waitlist control +smartphone sleep feedback in a randomized clinical trial in a sample of 75 Mayo Clinic employees.

  • The Cognitive Effects of Lorazepam in Healthy Older Individuals with TOMM40 Variable-length Polymorphisms Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.
