Student Wellness

Medical school is a time of immense academic and professional growth.  As students hone their knowledge base and skill set, they also have the opportunity to expand their sense of self and purpose.  How students interact with the challenges and intensity of the medical school experience has the potential for meaningful self discovery and personal growth.  Honoring students as whole beings, we strive to support and enhance their human experience as they progress through medical school.

We believe that in order to thrive professionally, care for others, and share the human experience with their patients, requires students to nourish and care for themselves.

Wellness at JABSOM

JABSOM is committed to creating a culture of wellness where being healthy and well is understood to be fundamental to thriving as individuals and as a collective.  We seek to do this through building on our inherent strengths, and acknowledging where reforms and improvement need to be made as an organization and the field of medicine.  We also ask for students to be active participants in nurturing and being proactive in their well-being.  As a school we are also working towards creating a healthier environment for our students through faculty/staff development and normalizing self care and seeking help.
