(POWDER MOUNTAIN-SOLITUDE) Growing Pains: Building and Growing a Thriving Medical Student Wellness Program with Minimal Resources

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2012, The University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix (COM-P) received preliminary accreditation to become a separate medical school from the University of Arizona, College of Medicine - Tucson. The inaugural class of 2017 began in the fall of 2013 with a new curriculum. With minimal curricular constraints, widespread institutional support, and a lack of past institutional history, the development of a Wellness Program has blossomed and flourished over the past four years and has become woven into the cultural fabric of the new medical school. However, developing the Wellness program to where it is today took significant time and effort. This discussion/workshop is meant to help guide other colleges in the growth of their medical student wellness programs while discussing tactics and techniques to solve barriers that may arise when developing a program. The workshop will use the College of Medicine’s current Wellness structure and growth as an example.

Overall, the workshop is meant to discuss buy-in, budgeting, program expansion, and curricular development, while encouraging other institutions to create their own proposal/outline for developing a wellness program.
