Academic Success

Wellness Curriculum

The Office of Student Affairs firmly believes in the continued development of the whole person during medical school. During time spent with us, we encourage students to take part in activities that will both support and challenge them as future physicians. In addition to extracurricular activities, the Office of Student Affairs hosts a year long series of programs constituting a Wellness Curriculum which provide an additional layer of support during stressful times. Other offices offering specific support services are invited to attend appropriate sessions.

Components of the Wellness Curriculum:

First Year Programs

We recognize that life as a medical student calls for an adjustment and that transition looks different for each and every student. Members of Student Affairs will begin to address this transition at Orientation and continue talking about it beyond your first course. See more...

Second Year Programs

As students return from summer break and begin their second year of medical school, the Office of Student Affairs helps second year students in their transition to upperclassmen. This begins with the arrival of the first year students in July and culminates in September when classes are in session. See more...

Third Year Programs

As students return from completion of Step 1 and the first half of their medical school career, they begin a new transition to clinical time. While this is a time of excitement for many, there are certain areas of stress and uncertainty that come along with being on the front lines of patient care. See more...
