What is the
Wellness & Student Life
Action Committee?

The Wellness & Student Life (WSL) Action Committee is dedicated to both trainee wellness and patient wellness through the development of patient-centered care and of supportive educational environments. These goals require an emphasis on patient-centered care over physician-centered care, especially as that care pertains to integrative/complementary/alternative medicine. The WSL committee also advocates for and supports the need for trainees to have regular access to medical humanities to foster healing through understanding, community, creativity, personal reflection, and a connection with humanity.

According to the CDC, suicide is a leading cause of death in the US, with one death occurring every 11 minutes. Recent studies have shown that this number is even higher amongst physicians. However, the importance of acknowledging mental health has become more recognized in recent years. Come join AMSA’s Wellness and Student Life this September and learn what you can do to help combat this epidemic.
