MISSION STATEMENT
This organization is a collaborative effort among students, faculty, and the Office of Student Affairs at the College of Medicine that encourages students to take control of our own wellness. The purpose of the COM Wellness Council is to promote academic, financial, mental/spiritual, nutritional, and physical wellness among the students and faculty at the USF College of Medicine. We believe future physicians who value wellness in themselves will be better advocates of health to their patients.
