PROJECTS & PARTNERS

The Stanford WellMD Center and the Physician Wellness Committee both act as agents of change with their own programs as well as a means for support, networking and collaboration between various department and institution initiatives.  Here is an overview of Center- and Committee-connected wellness programs for physicians and trainees.   Additional wellness opportunities can be found throughout this website.
