Learn More About Student Workshops
With higher rates of stress, burnout, anxiety, and other mental health conditions, wellness centers, are a priority for schools and hospitals. LAS has always prioritized wellness and mental health since it began on a university campus with a major medical center, 30 years ago.
LAS Founder, Loren Deutsch is a licensed clinical social worker and educational therapist. She designed the LAS Medical Coaching Model due to a culture of silence around mental health and a lack of diversity and representation in medical education.
Below are recent titles of groups and workshops that LAS designed for current Wellness Centers:
- “Contending with Burnout in Medical Education”
- “Personal Wellbeing for Residents”
- “Remediation and ‘Pre-mediation’ in Medical Education”
- “Dealing with Failure”
- “Essential Ingredients for High-Stakes Exam Prep: A Research-Based Approach for Learning”
Students, residents, and early career physicians experience emotional fatigue and burnout at rates much higher than the general public.Create a Well-Being Center at Your Medical School or Medical Center

LAS believes that mental health can be discussed and supported, rather than persist silently.Contact Us
An outstanding program with fantastic teachers. They truly go above and beyond. Would highly recommend.
LAS was instrumental in my success as a physician and during my training. Board exams are flawed in that they cater to a one size fit all model. LAS helped level the playing field.
