Why Wellness?

Medical School is a journey. While it is a very rewarding journey, it can also be very physically and emotionally demanding. Medical students' well-being and health habits influence their academic performance, emotional adjustment, and future functioning as physicians. That is why the UNSOM believes it is important to have a program in place for medical students to promote their mental, emotional and physical well-being. By providing a wellness program to medical students early and throughout their medical education, UNSOM seeks to positively affect students' functioning and  provide resources to better equip medical students to address their health and well-being issues effectively. The UNSOM Wellness Program for medical students address several different areas of wellness including mental, emotional, physical activity, nutrition, and social. These areas are addressed through a variety of activities year to year.
