Welcome to the STREaM Homepage!

The Supportive Training for Residents through Education in Mindfulness (STREaM) curriculum creates a dedicated space within residency training for interested resident physicians to experience mindfulness meditation as a practice that supports both personal growth as well as clinical skill development. This curriculum includes classes, invitations to practice, recordings, research readings, and other resources with an intention to meet residents “where they are at” in the midst of medical training.

Our History

  • Launched in 2016, STREaM was designed in a collaboration of the UW Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, the UW Integrative Health Program, and the UW Health Mindfulness Program
  • The curriculum was derived from resident self-identified experiences that contribute to burnout during their training and informed by mindfulness-based interventions including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and mindfulness training for teachers in the Madison Metropolitan School District
  • Initially a 10-hour offering facilitated with first year family medicine residents, the course has evolved to meet the needs of residents in all years of training and is offered in a variety of formats and timeframes including a virtual format for multi-specialty resident physicians throughout Wisconsin.
