Wellness Initiative & Task Force
To be comprehensive, HMS established a task force that assists with the wellness initiative, including wellness curriculum review and identifying ways to reduce burnout and promote resilience on clinical rotations.
Dr. Jennifer Potter is leading this initiative, housed in the Offices of Student Affairs, in collaboration with the faculty and staff that support student life: the Office of Recruitment and Multicultural Affairs, the Academic Societies, Vanderbilt Hall, the Office of Learning Resources and Support and the Office of Disability Services.
Wellness Student Interest Group
The voice of the student population is a cornerstone of our initiative as we aim to ensure that we are moving in the right direction by hearing from our students what is working, what is not, and how we can best support the wellness and mental health of our students. The Wellness Student Interest Group serves as one of the voices guiding the initiative in addition to organizing fun wellness activities and engaging in other endeavors that also support the wellness initiative.
Speaker Series: Sharing Struggles & Building Resilience
The speaker series is part of a larger attempt to address the impact that culture may have on wellness from effortless perfection to mental health stigma. All HMS students are welcomed to attend and events are announced by email.
