Resident Wellness Office

What is Wellness?

Wellness is the practice of healthy habits on a daily basis to attain and sustain mental and physical health. In Residency, there are a variety of stressors both internal and external that can impact both mental and physical health. Residents are expected to balance educational, personal and patient care responsibilities.
