Join the Resident Wellness Champions Network

Introducing the Wellness Champions Network

What is the Wellness Champions Network?

The Wellness Champions Network is designed to promote resident wellness* and to recognize and empower resident leaders within postgraduate medical education at UBC. The network is not intended to replace or replicate existing resources within your program, rather to broaden and strengthen the availability of peer support for all residents. 

Join the network!

Residents and subspecialty residents - from any year of training and from any program or site - are eligible to join the network. As a Wellness Champion, you'll encourage dialogue around wellness in residency, share wellness communication from the Resident Wellness Office, remain familiar with support services and wellness resources, and serve as a wellness contact for peers.This is a volunteer role that would be appointed for one year (or longer) and would involve a minimal time commitment, approximately 1 to 2 hours per month.
