Balint groups are comprised of physicians who regularly gather to present and reflect on clinical cases with the goal of improving the physician-patient relationship by enhancing the physician's interpersonal and communication skills, patient care, and professionalism. The goal of this study was to assess the effect on empathy and psychological skills of a voluntary Balint curriculum in the University of Missouri Family Medicine Residency program since initiation in 2010.
