Health & Wellbeing

Health promoting universities and colleges...create campus cultures of compassion, well-being, equity and social justice; improve the health of the people who live, learn, work, play and love on our campuses.

There are many supports and resources available within the MD Program and the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry and, more broadly, within the University of Alberta community or the Edmonton area.
