Medical Student Wellness and Resilience Program Mission Statement
Physician burnout has become an epidemic, with far reaching implications for patients, clinicians, and health systems. Physicians in training must be educated about burnout, but more importantly must be engaged to consider what information, skills, and advancements are needed to mitigate the effects of burnout and move toward resilience. The Student Wellness and Resilience Program provides a content driven and data informed take on preventing physician burnout while creating an environment for students to evaluate and develop their own well-being and resilience. The Director for Wellness and Resilience will collaborate with student leadership to promote retreats, programming and events to allow for school sponsored focus and support of our student’s well-being.
