Dissertation project

Effects of a tailored mindfulness-based program on resident physicians' salutogenesis

Being faced with high workloads, medical residents exhibit above-average rates of burnout, depression, and substance abuse. The aim of the project was to help residents cope with work-related challenges and increase their well-being, serenity and resilience.The intervention consisted of an 8-week mindfulness program that had specifically been adapted to the needs of medical residents. Within my dissertation I evaluated the effects of mindfulness on salutogenetic aspects of mental health  using a mixed methods design, consisting of both qualitative and quantitative methods.
