Wellness Program

Program Overview

** The UMKC School of Medicine Wellness Program serves all UMKC School of Medicine students, including those in our MSA and MSB programs. **

In addition to the intellectual capacity for the sciences, medical school requires strong time-management skills, self-discipline, and responsibility. In a six-year program, these skills are even more imperative.

Change is not easy. All students should begin breaking down the areas of stress in their lives and coming up with feasible, measurable steps to achieve these skills early on in their academic careers.

An important key to developing as a student & a future physician is self-awareness.

Wellness Planning is a great way to do just that. As a service to you, the UMKC School of Medicine Wellness Program offers individual planning and coaching. The first session involves the Take Care of Yourself wellness inventory. This inventory will allow you to do the following:

  • Identify current stressors
  • Identify strengths
  • Identify areas for improvement
  • Create an action plan
