HOME for Rotations is a Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine program designed to help students as they encounter pain, birth, death, and all the other experiences that take them beyond the textbook and lecture slides. To help build resiliency and address issues of burnout and loss of empathy, a key element appears to be creating institutional spaces of personal and group reflection. These programs exist in a variety of forms, especially for residents and pre-clinical medical students. However, there are not many designed for rotating clinical students. This program is based on an examination of research conducted on other programs, which reveal a key set of elements needed in a humanistic curriculum for students. HOME for Rotations was based on this research and is launching Fall 2019.
