Introduction Activity: Identifying a Peer for the Health Behavior Change Project

We hope that after having gone through this lesson, you’ve realized the important connection between a physician’s own lifestyle and a patient’s health behavior outcome.

Most of the students taking this course improve their own health just by being exposed to the materials – thus, this project is a chance for you to become even healthier and happier, which in turn will surely contribute to your patients’ health.

For this course project, you are asked to choose one peer, preferably one that is taking the course with you, to practice with. You may also choose a colleague near you. Throughout the modules you will be asked to meet/Skype with your peer and practice the use of key materials and behavioral methods on each other.

By the end of the course (see Module 10) you will submit a summary of this project.
