Wellness Program




The OUWB Student Affairs staff provides well-being coaching through a motivational counseling model to all medical students throughout their four years of medical school. Our wellness model is comprised of eight spokes of focus: physical, social, spiritual, intellectual, occupational, emotional, financial, and environmental wellness. Upon entry, all M1 students are assigned to a well-being coach and asked to complete a basic wellness self-assessment. With guidance from their coach, each student creates a well-being plan with short- and long-term goals that can be reviewed and adjusted at any time.


Please join the Wellness and Well-being portal on MedSync for information about wellness-related programs, events and speakers.
