The student run Wellness Committee’s purpose is to identify and address wellness needs of OUSCM students.
Unfortunately, fast paced degree programs such as medical and PA school commonly results in students feeling overwhelmed, depressed, and frustrated. The time constraints that come with such exceedingly large academic demands often leads to neglect of self-care. Paradoxically, self-care is needed most when we are required to perform under high levels of pressure.
The Wellness Committee aims to address gaps in personal wellness by creating a wellness-oriented environment. Through organization of wellness-related events, education and a compassionate attitude, we hope to support our classmates through one of the most difficult and rewarding times of our lives.
