Starting March 21, 2022, Certified Compassion Cultivation Training© (CCT™) Teacher Diana Adams Ed.D. will be offering a CCT class exclusively to Medical Staff and Faculty involved in clinical care at Stanford Medicine. This class is funded in part by Compassion Institute.


Diana Adams is a psychologist and served on the Stanford Hospital Medical Staff from 1997 until 2016. She also served on the Adjunct Clinical Faculty in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences for 20 years where she remains an Adjunct Professor in Psychiatry. As a psychologist, Diana’s deep interest in medical staff wellness led her to take a CCT class in 2014. With the specific goal of bringing CCT to the Stanford Medical Staff, Diana went on to become a certified CCT Teacher.
