Stoeckle Center Seminars, Lectures, and Programs
This Stoeckle Center seminars monthly lecture series provide a forum to share innovative ideas and best practices with the Mass General primary care community.
The MGH General Medicine Unit hosts quarterly conferences that focus specifically on systems-based issues. The objective of this program is to dissect cases where patient care or outcome was negatively impacted by failures of process, communication, or operations. These sessions are peer-review protected. The desired outcome is to highlight, address, and eventually prevent the types of system-related hazards that are often encountered during routine care. The target audience for these cases includes generalists in both the inpatient and outpatient arena, as well as all other members of the care team.
Literature & Medicine: Humanities at the Heart of Health Care is an exciting workplace program that will give people involved in the delivery of health care an opportunity to come together and reflect on their roles as health care providers through the medium of literature.

The Cabot Primary Care Lecture Series was designed by the Cabot Society, a student and faculty group at Harvard Medical School (HMS), to encourage dialogue about issues important in primary care medicine – such as patient-doctor communication, care of the underserved, community medicine, professionalism, quality of care and health care policy. The series was founded in 1993, and in 2008, the Stoeckle Center and the HMS Primary Care Division began collaborating to plan the series.
The Stoeckle Center hosts Schwartz Center Rounds, which are unique, multi-disciplinary sessions in which Mass General staff explore the emotional side of caregiving.
