    Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is of utmost importance in healthcare settings. Whether it’s interacting with patients and their families, or working with interprofessional, multidisciplinary teams, emotional intelligence is essential for successful outcomes. Unfortunately, formalized training programs in emotional intelligence do not exist in the context of healthcare.

    How can faculty apply EQ principles to the instruction of students enrolled in healthcare training programs and resident physicians in training? What EQ tools are available for faculty?

    In this workshop, participants will have the chance to better understand their own EQ indices, and apply EQ to their work with students and residents. Specific time will be spent on the core EQ components: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management.

    Following this session, participants will be able to:

    1) Define emotional intelligence and identify key EQ concepts
    2) Discuss how improving emotional intelligence can improve teamwork, communication, professionalism, and patient care
    3) Review different instructional methods to teach emotional intelligence in trainees
