So begins another Balint group for clinicians. Using a case presentation model in a facilitated discussion format, clinicians are invited to explore the clinician-patient dynamic. The deceptively simple process can enable clinicians not only to learn more about the perspectives of the patient but also to foster greater satisfaction in the practice of medicine. This is one possible method of practice-based learning that we are exploring to reinvigorate our vocation.
