Here's the deal:

This course is an interactive CME program for women medical professionals to improve self-awareness and learn skills to manage stress. Through the program, women physicians can earn up to 14 AMA PRA CME  & up to 14 AOA Category 1A Credits while enjoying themselves. Retreats are offered in 4 or 8 block sessions of 2 1/2 hours in the Charlotte area, or globally for 5-8 days in enchanting settings around the globe.

The program combines mindfulness, meditation, yoga, CBT, pottery, and peer support, accompanied by farm-to-table homemade-gourmet food & beverages. Each session will include amazing food from a selected culture or region from around the globe for us to explore our senses through. Make new friendships with fellow woman physicians as we enjoy meals together, discuss hand-picked articles, or share experiences about the skills we’ve learned through the program. As we immerse ourselves further in creative play through ceramic design. Through the art of pottery, we will improve the mastery of mindfulness through visual, tactile, postural, and in-the-moment awareness. This will be followed by a meditative, mindfulness, or CBT technique that is best suited for the culture or region we have honored that week. The evenings then wind down with dessert.

Through these sessions, we will identify the signs and symptoms of burnout and acknowledge ways we can improve our personal well-being. We will explore goals and engage in skills to improve compassion, creativity, and empowerment. These skills can not only be applied for our own self-care, but with our patients in day to care as they struggle with stress and anxiety too.

What makes this instructor EXTRA qualified?

Dr. Randie Schacter is an osteopathic trained medical doctor that is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in General Psychiatry and board certified in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. In 2010, she left corporate medicine and opened her private practice, where she treats primarily women and children with a special passion in caring for women physicians. She continues to practice and learn new techniques in psycho-dynamically minded therapy, CBT and mindfulness, progressive, muscle relaxation, meditation, and other forms of non-pharmacologic treatments.  

She is the past president to the Charlotte Area Psychiatric Society. Although not a political group, it was a form for colleagues to come together, share experiences, and learn about current issues that affect them in medicine. Currently, she is the delegate to the NC Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Assembly and co-editor to their newsletter. She is a speaker for various organizing on managing stress and burnout and understanding gender differences in its presentation and its management. 

From an early age, she had a passion for food and cooking. Growing up in a Jewish-Moroccan home meant that culturally food is love. In Greece, she worked as a prep cook for a season. She has catered friend’s engagement parties, weddings, and Bnei Mitzvahs. She has taken cooking classes to learn and master more, always willing to learn from anyone willing to share. She is also a functional potter making everyday items from cups to platters. She is a member of the Charlotte Pottery Guild, Carolina Clay Matters, where she expands her pottery techniques.
