Physician Well-Being is a curricular key theme at TUSM that aims to promote student physician wellness in medical school and beyond. We support medical students in maintaining a healthy lifestyle with the goal of becoming positive wellness role models for their patients. While medical training is undoubtedly challenging, TUSM encourages students to continually assess and preserve their overall wellness in all of its distinct forms.
If you are transitioning to the Boston area, you will need a local Primary Care Physician (PCP) for regular preventative services and sick visits throughout your time at Tufts. The Boston Health Science Campus does not have an on-campus student health center so all of your health services will be provided via your local network of health providers. If you currently see additional health professionals who are located out of state (medical specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, etc.) you should identify similar providers here in Boston, as well. Our Wellness Adviser (see below) is able to assist student who have difficulty identifying providers in the local area.
There are a variety of wellness resources available to TUSM students – some (but not all) are included below. For further information, please contact the Office of Student Affairs (617-636-6534) or the Office of Education Affairs (617-636-6934).
