Paradise is calling. Slip away from the hustle and bustle and tap back into the reasons you were called to medicine while enjoying quality time with family and friends. 

The Intentional Practitioner Retreat combines the expertise of AdventHealth’s premier well-being and mental health providers in hosting an experiential wellness retreat for physicians, advanced practice providers, and graduate residents credentialed at any of the CFD and WFD hospital campuses. This group of psychologists and psychotherapists will host the inaugural event in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, at the Pelican Grand Beach Hotel.


As the title suggests, this boutique retreat experience aims to engage providers in meaningful conversations that can lead to intentional changes in their personal and professional wellness as well as their ability to improve work/life balance. With a focus on whole-person care, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in experiential activities that foster wellness and self-care as well as learn innovative ways to be intentional about achieving well-being and fulfilment personally and professionally. 


The retreat will kick off with a welcome dinner, followed by a weekend that includes a combination of learning, socializing, and relaxing activities. Attendees will receive 6 CME (Continuing Medical Education) hours through didactic and experiential learning and be provided with take-home resources. In the spirit of work/life balance, we encourage attendees to bring their immediate families.
