TLISI 2022: Is There Space For a New Normal?
Hurtado de Mendoza, Alejandra

As educators, we pass on much more than knowledge and skills. There is a hidden curriculum we transmit to our students by how we embody wellness, balance, and self-compassion. This acquisition of beliefs, values, and attitudes contribute to the construct of their professional identities. Often we have been trained in environments that have taught us to leave "life out of work" and "work out of life." As we emerge from a Covid environment in which students have been in our living rooms, met our children, and loved our dogs...there is an opportunity to create a new normal. Do we choose to return to pre-Covid boundaries or do these boundaries need to be re-thought at this juncture? In preliminary data from The Experiences of Women in Medicine study, women share wanting more of these "real" conversations as part of their curriculum/training. How do we create formal and informal space for these conversations-- to not simply balance personal and professional identities but to understand them both as lifelong components of the whole person?
