Office of Advocacy and Wellbeing

The Office of Advocacy & Wellbeing in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta looks after issues pertaining to the health and well-being of learners. The office also advocates on their behalf.

Learner health and well-being includes all areas related to both physical and mental health. We provide counselling on academic and personal matters. We also provide advice and help accommodate needs with special circumstances. Our aim is to ensure that undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate learners are not distracted by health matters and are able to perform to the best of their abilities.

As advocates for learners, we ensure their best interests are represented in all faculty and university considerations. This includes advocating for students and residents both, and making sure they are represented on all major policy committees.
