Wellbeing Committee

Mission

To support and promote the wellbeing of medical students by providing resources, building relationships and cultivating an environment to foster the health of the whole person.

Subcommittees

Recognizing the multi-faceted nature of wellness, we have 6 subcommittees to cultivate an environment that incorporates all dimensions of wellbeing.

Each dimension has a representative from each year of medical school as well as a faculty adviser. Members work together to organize programming, provide resources and build community that supports their wellbeing dimension. A representative from each dimension participates on the executive committee to coordinate resources and monitor progress.
