Undergraduate medical curricula as well as professional codes of conduct for doctors increasingly require affective and emotionally attuned attributes and skills (Australian Medical Council, 2012; Medical Board of Australia, 2014)
Emotional Intelligence teaching and learning is offered early in the medical curriculum as part of the multi-dimensional course aimed at the development of knowledge and skills in self-development and well-being. Over the last five years a mindfulness based stress management program entitled ESSENCE+ has been developed based on a model by Hassed (2008). Emotional Intelligence formed part of this program and was progressively embedded into the first and second year curriculum, through regular small group sessions, experiential learning, lectures and reflective assessment tasks.
