Program Description and Specific Objectives
A trainee’s well-being is an essential part of our postgraduate training programs. While programs and the Faculty are dedicated to promoting good health and addressing problems, if and when they arise, there is an assumption that the trainee and his or her colleagues also bear responsibility to address this problem with the highest priority. Recognizing all of the potential challenges to maintaining one’s emotional and physical well-being, there is a greater onus upon us to work towards our own health as we would do for our patients.
The preceding sets out a series of policies and procedures as they pertain to the maintenance and management of well-being in our postgraduate trainees, yet should there be additional questions or concerns, residents and fellows are always encouraged to be in touch with the well-being program director (Ms. Monique Beaulne), the Faculty Wellness office or the Postgraduate Medical Education office.
