IkigaiMedEd: Medutopia’s Advanced Medical Education Course

Kentucky Castle, Versailles, KY - USA

About this course

What’s that ‘thing’ that gets you out of bed in the morning? What motivates and inspires you to give back to the world doing something you love? In Japanese, this concept of meaning is known as ikigai. There are four elements that embody the concept of ikigai:

  1. What you love
  2. What you’re good at
  3. What the world needs
  4. What you can be paid for

Where these elements overlap you’ll discover your ikigai: that which you’re meant to do. It empowers you to lead a long and happy career. IkigaiMedEd: Medutopia’s Advanced Medical Education Course is designed to help you find your ikigai with the help of a faculty made up of some of the world’s top medical educators.
