What Hippocrates Knew and We Have Forgotten https://videos.med.wisc.edu/videos/40332 <p> Medical students hear about the Hippocratic Oath during the first days of medical school, but what does it actually state?&nbsp; Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician who lived from 460 to 370 BC, so how relevant is his interpretation of medicine nowadays?&nbsp; Dr. John Patrick, a retired pediatrician and now a world-renown lecturer, explores these questions further.&nbsp;</p> <p> <span style="color:#ffffff;">&quot;What the Hippocratic Oath gave substance to was a vision of a medical community with a predictable character of high ethical standards which could support justifiable trust between physician and patient with all the therapeutic benefit which such a community produces.&quot;<em>&nbsp;&nbsp;</em>Dr. Patrick argues that today, medicine has become more commercialized with a loss of these &quot;communities of character.&quot;&nbsp;Therefore how can we currently put the Hippocratic oath into practice?</span></p>Presented by John Patrick, MD 2012-04-11 Self-Care and Spirituality in the Classroom https://videos.med.wisc.edu/videos/7995 Presented by Adam Rindfleisch, MD 2009-04-22 For University of Wisconsin Only - Riding the Dragon: Psychological Approaches to Preventing and Limiting Secondary Stress https://videos.med.wisc.edu/videos/1345 This video is intended to be viewed by those affiliated with the University of Wisconsin Only! Thank you. One of the greatest gifts persons in the health care professions can share with others is a sense of their own peace. However, they cannot share what they do not have. By discussing psychological approaches to secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others), Wicks offers insights into how physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, chaplains, and other health care professionals/executives can extend their warmth to others without losing their own inner fire in the process. Topics include: “unlearning;” maintaining a sense of perspective; ordinariness; the circle of supportive and challenging friends needed in health care; balance; passion; strong self-awareness; developing a self-care protocol; applying positive psychology in the clinician’s own life; and the necessity of appreciating the building blocks of mindfulness.Presented by Robert J. Wicks, PsyD 2009-01-25 Teacher as Healer - Perceptions and Spiritual Connections https://videos.med.wisc.edu/videos/2711 David Rakel, MD, will show the similarities of facilitating health and learning. He discusses the importance of self-reflection in enhancing teaching and the understanding of the science of perception and how this influences a cascade of physical effects in the body. This fascinating presentation will teach you how to change perception to facilitate positive emotions and show how spirituality (exploring a connection that gives life meaning and purpose) can influence teaching quality and enjoyment.Presented by David P.

Based on Dr. Davidson's research with longstanding meditators from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, he compares responses between the monks and non-practitioners. He also explores current research on happiness and shares his conclusion that our compassion for another human being can change their biology in an interaction.Presented by Richard J.
