Office of Advocacy & Wellbeing

Vision and Mission

The mission of the Office of Advocacy & Wellbeing (OAW) in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta is to ensure that learners are able to achieve to their full potential as learners and individuals. We recognize that personal and academic circumstances may arise that create barriers to achievement.

Our office provides a safe and confidential venue for learners to seek out resources and support around mental and physical health, harassment and intimidation, learning disabilities and career counselling. OAW also strives to ensure an overall supportive academic environment that is conducive to academic achievement and personal growth.
