Roundtable 5 | 9:30 – 10:30 am

Developing GRIT in Medical Students

We will brainstorm ideas to develop GRIT in medical students including encouraging vulnerability. Vulnerability can be seen as sacrificing credibility. In truth, being vulnerable creates a more honest and trusting environment. To err is to be human. We need not feel shame. Instead, we must develop acceptance and GRIT.
