About Mindful Medicine

Mindful Medicine is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID: 46-3513976) based in Portland, OR.

Our goals are to:

  •     increase coping skills and resiliency for health professionals;
  •     enhance and foster empathy and compassion in our medical providers thereby reducing and preventing burnout;

To achieve these goals, we introduce evidence-based mindfulness skills relevant to health professionals drawn from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and related models.
