Wellness and Inclusion

Welcome to the Wellness and Inclusion Center


Medicine has changed a great deal in the last 20 years, as has the unique stressors of practicing and teaching medicine, along with medical training. Resilience and burnout are the new buzz words. As a result, many schools and hospitals have adopted wellness programs to combat the trend of increasing rates of student/physician stress and depression.
