Why is your health important?

VCU School of Medicine: Inova Campus

3300 Gallows Rd, Falls Church, VA 22042

We are a student and faculty run wellness panel whose primary goal is to inspire healthy living and balance amongst third and fourth year medical students at the Inova Fairfax Hospital by promoting the six dimensions well-being including occupation, physical, social, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional. 

Corporate Training

As medical students we have a responsibility to take care of our own health even when life becomes demanding. Without mental and physical health, we cannot care for others. It is apparent that medical students can neglect their own well-being in favor of studying for a few more minutes, reading a few more pages, writing one more patient note...

 

While there are always factors that are out of our control, we must strike that balance that that allows us to be the best physicians that we can be. With the right wellness plan we believe that even the busiest professionals can be content and avoid both depression and burnout. 

Health is a set of choices you make throughout your day.
