TOOER is a network of women physicians dedicated to empowering ourselves to enact positive change in our personal lives, workplaces and communities; through continuing education activities with focus on incorporating self-care and well-being practices into all aspects of our careers in medicine.
TOOER provides regular educational meetings with the following purposes:
To develop, promote and sustain a community of women physicians, dedicated to development of self-care and healing practices that support our work as healers
To provide a safe, nurturing space for women physicians to define their values and goals, and to formulate a plan to live those values and attain those goals in their personal and professional lives
To incorporate teachings that enhance our leadership and mentoring skills and enhance patient care
