This course will discuss how wellness and fitness relates to learning capacity and stress management. The history of fitness and sport and how it relates to the U.S. educational system and geopolitical environment over the past century will set the basis for the understanding of our current educational environment. The process of learning that takes place inside residency training, including the unique stressors that affect the capacity of trainees to develop into neurosurgeons will be explored as we define the optimal habits required to sustain a career beyond residency.
