In response to the increasing demands of medical education a group of students, with unwavering support from faculty and administration, have developed an organization dedicated to prioritizing personal wellness at UKCOM. Although this group cannot alleviate the pressures of becoming a physician, their goal is to strengthen the resilience of medical students as they begin careers in medicine.
Resilient MD was established to make personal wellness a priority for all students. In order to provide compassionate, empathetic, and humanistic care to patients, medical students and doctors must take care of themselves first. Three areas of focus will synergize to deliver wellness resources and interventions - destigmatization, prevention, and intervention. Our end goal is to be well, and do good.
