Resident Wellness Champions Network

Residents and subspecialty residents – from any year of training and from any program or site – are eligible to join the network. Wellness Champions are ambassadors for wellness within their residency program/site.
They do this by:

  • Encouraging dialogue around wellness in residency;
  • Sharing wellness communication from the Resident Wellness Office;
  • Remaining familiar with support services and wellness resources;
  • Serving as a wellness contact for peers;
  • Providing feedback to the Resident Wellness Office related to the needs of their program/site.

Importantly, the Wellness Champion role does not involve counselling or advising others. Wellness Champions can comfortably have conversations about wellness-related concerns with peers, and will refer to resources as appropriate. The Wellness Champions Network, involving both residents and faculty, will facilitate the sharing of ideas and critical discussion related to resident wellness at UBC.

Listed below are the identified Wellness Champion(s) for each program.
