Wellness Committee

The goal of the Medical Student Wellness Committee (MSW) is to promote mental, physical, nutritional and overall health for all medical students of McGill’s Faculty of medicine.

ISA Assessment Statement

The Independent Student Assessment performed in 2014 for Accreditation resulted in some key areas for improvement involving student wellness. Areas of weakness included lack of a healthy lifestyle, insufficient time to attend to personal matters such as GP checkups as well as hesitation to take absences for health related matters.

The MSW hopes to address all of these issues in the future by better integrating wellness throughout the curriculum, within faculty policy, and extracurricular activities and resources
