Lecture-Emotional Intelligence for Physicians


Emotional Intelligence for Physicians-the soft skills they did not teach you in medical school


EI

One of the most common complaints leveled against doctors by patients and nurses is that the doctor lacks empathy and basic communication skills. This is not surprising given the selection process for medical school and the methods used in medical training. Many of the relationship issues in a  physician’s life could be improved with some basic training in emotional intelligence.  

This lecture teaches essential information about emotional intelligence and provides the skills needed to communicate better with patients, colleagues, staff members and even partners and spouses. 


By the end of this lecture, participants should be able to:

  • Define and practice self-management and self-awareness 
  • Understand the value and importance of empathy
  • Know the difference between sympathy and empathy
  • Increase the "sweet spot" where EQ, IQ and personality overlap
  • Appreciate the influence of physician personality and training on emotional intelligence
  • Understand, use and manage your emotions
  • Verbally communicate with others
  • Set boundaries and communicate needs
  • Know the difference between a boundary and an expectation
  • Successfully communicate with others in a non-verbal manner
  • Identify the benefits of emotional intelligence
  • Relate emotional intelligence to the medical workplace
  • Balance optimism and pessimism
  • Effectively impact others
  • … and much more

Audience: physicians, physician executives
