We seek to foster a culture of wellness and wellbeing in medical school.


Our mission is to advocate for a healthy balance of mental, emotional and physical well-being which can help complement and enhance the medical student experience and to provide students with resources for personal and professional development.

As physicians-in-training, we all share an underlying desire to help other people, yet we struggle to help ourselves or our colleagues when faced with our own adversity. Through this blog, we seek to break down these barriers in communication and restore a sense of community. The blog is open to the BUSM community, and serve as a platform for open dialogue and reflection about adversity in medicine.
