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. 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. Award amount of $2,500.
