The St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society, in partnership with our sponsor Commerce Trust, will present a half-day educational seminar focused on personal and professional wellness as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will be held on Saturday, March 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This event is free of charge and all physicians, residents/fellows and medical students are invited to participate.

The program will be held at Commerce Bank St. Louis Headquarters, 8000 Forsyth (10th floor) in Clayton. Free parking in the Commerce Garage will be provided. This will be a hybrid presentation to allow both in-person and virtual participation.

8:30 a.m. – Registration and Continental Breakfast
9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – Program (Participants may claim up to 3.0 CME contact hours; see Accreditation Statement below)

The program will include three dynamic interactive presentations:

Session 1 – 9:00 a.m. – Communications Style: What’s Your Diagnosis?
Tiffany Snipes, Senior Talent Development Consultant, Commerce Bank
Gretchen A. Pettet, Senior Talent Development Consultant, Commerce Bank
How does your communication style impact the way you practice medicine? DiSC is a widely-used assessment tool to help you uncover your default communication style and preferences. Discover your own DiSC style and learn how to adapt to the style of others, ultimately improving the quality of your day-to-day interactions with patients and colleagues. With greater self-awareness and a set of new skills, you will be able to motivate and persuade others better while strengthening your relationships.

Session 2 – 10:10 a.m. – Not Just Another Burnout Lecture
Dr. Jessi Gold, Assistant Professor and Director of Wellness, Engagement, and Outreach, Department of Psychiatry, Washington University School of Medicine
A physician presentation that builds upon the earlier session examining personal style, and focuses on vulnerability and culture change as ways to decrease burnout in medicine post-pandemic. It will identify systemic barriers and not minimize them, but instead, highlight ways to find meaning and self-compassion in a challenging workplace.

Session 3 – 11:20 a.m. – Understanding Alternative Investments
David Hertlein, Vice President, Sr. Private Banker, Commerce Trust
Steve Bredbenner, CFP, AWMA, Sr. Vice President, Portfolio Manager, Commerce Trust
An inside look at how to approach alternative asset categories and how to use alternatives for diversification, risk mitigation, and balance sheet efficiency.
