STUDENT WELLNESS FOR MEDICAL, NURSING, AND DENTAL SCHOOL STUDENTS It's no secret that medical school is stressful. Between demanding course work and long hours, many students don't have the time of resources to care for their overall well-being. Long periods of stress predisposes students for depression and anxiety. 27% OF MEDICAL STUDENTS ARE DEPRESSED 11% OF MEDICAL STUDENTS HAVE SUIDICAL THOUGHTS Source This cycle frequently continues after medical school. Roughly 1 physician commits suicide per day. It is our goal to combat this trend by improving student wellness and removing the stigma around mental health treatment.
