Physician Wellness

Imagine you are a first-year medical student and just moved across the country to start your training. It is a stressful time, adjusting to a new city, a school and new people. How do you find your way around campus? Do you need a car? Who should you contact if you need help?

The project includes a website, awareness activities, and targeted workshops to support medical students at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Check it out: Check Your Vitals
