Event Details


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Continuing Education, Inc. and Pronto Seminars. Continuing Education, Inc. is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.



Designation: Continuing Education, Inc. designates this live activity for a maximum of 24 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Each physician should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.



With higher patient loads, required documentation in electronic medical records, and multiple things competing for a clinician’s attention, in can be challenging to stay focused. Clinicians are stretched and stressed today more than ever and are at serious risk for burnout. How can clinicians improve the quality of care that they provide while improving their own resilience and wellbeing?

Come join a multi-day retreat like workshop designed for medical practitioners, health professionals and others (Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, RNs, NPs, PAs, Therapists, Counselors) involved in medical practice and education. Through experiential learning at a relaxed pace against the backdrop of breathtaking landscape, the workshop will focus on developing the capacity for self-awareness and self-compassion through mindful practices, patient stories, and shared clinical experiences. Practicing in non-stressful environments like this helps clinicians develop the capacity for practice in stressful and demanding situations.

Session themes will include skillful communication with patients/families, responding to suffering, difficult decisions, errors, professionalism, medical education, compassion, self-care, resilience, and burnout prevention.

Pronto Seminars

PRONTO SEMINARS organizes and hosts continuing education (CE and CME) workshops and retreats in Italy. Distinguished faculty, participants and their families come from all over the world to enjoy high quality experiential content at a relaxed pace. We provide an affordable way to combine work, travel and relaxation.

Our classes are small and designed so that afternoons and evenings are free for wanderings through the countryside, wonderful meals, or museum visits. Our participants tell us that learning in this environment, at a relaxed pace, allows for a full integration of new material and practices.

We are known for creating an intimate setting where presenters are available in a less formal way and where colleagues from around the globe become friends and get to know each other while enjoying the delights of Italy. This model provides an alternative to large and online conferences, and our participants have encouraged us to continue in this direction.

While we have participants from around the world, English is the language of our workshops. Space is limited.
