SUNY Downstate Resident/Fellow Wellness
Our Mission is to promote resident/fellow wellness through initiatives aimed at removing barriers to your well-being, development of skills to maintain a healthy/balanced lifestyle, building skills in resilience, and fostering an environment of camaraderie.
At SUNY Downstate, we want to emphasize wellness, prevent moral injury, and promote professional fulfillment. We realize the importance of your well-being in order to deliver the best education, research, and patient care. The Resident/Fellow Wellness Committee is dedicated to promoting these goals. Our team is composed of national experts, faculty advocates, and fellow residents.
The stress of residency may take its toll on even the best residents. For those in distress, we will partner with our mental health colleagues to provide the necessary resources. For others who express interest in wellness, we will provide opportunities to develop personal well-being and resilience skills. Together, let us create a culture of health, satisfaction, fulfillment, and success.
