HOWARD UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL WELL-BEING GROUP
ABOUT THE WELL-BEING GROUP
In March of 2019, the Howard University Hospital Well-being Group was created by the Graduate Medical Education Council to promote wellness in the Clinical Learning Environment. The group is interdisciplinary and composed of a diverse membership including Residency Program Directors, Residency Program Coordinators, resident representatives, Faculty Development team members, Nutrition and Dietetics advisors, medical school Wellness Class Officers and Pastoral Services representatives. The goal of the group is to support and meet the wellness needs of all learners, educators and participants in the clinical learning environment at the hospital and we hope this website will be a starting point to sharing the resources available.
