Personal Wellness


Medical students often find themselves stressed by academic challenges, high standards and career choice dilemmas. UVM recognizes that personal wellness plays an integral role in medical student success.

The UVM College of Medicine works to alleviate these stresses by:

  • increasing connectivity between students and faculty and among students at all levels of the curriculum through participation in the Learning Communities
  • providing students with effective academic and career counseling through regular meetings with their advisors
  • cultivating peer mentoring relationships (academic and personal) for on-going support and guidance

Student-Led Wellness Initiatives

Committee for Medical Student Wellbeing
The students on this committee provide a confidential peer support system for medical students. They connect students to mental health resources and educate students on ways to stay happy, healthy and successful.The committee sponsors the following activities: weekly yoga classes, snacks prior to big exams, hikes and snowshoeing and BBQ's and potlucks. They also publish a biannual wellness newsletter. Read more about the committee on our student groups page >>

Our students have very diverse interests both inside and outside of the classroom, ranging from playing music in local clubs and rock climbing to club sports and, of course, taking advantage of the winter recreational opportunities Vermont has to offer.
