MD Student Wellness & Support
Well-being is critical to the medical profession and it begins with strong support for medical students as future physicians
Medical school is a time of tremendous excitement, challenge and growth. We aim to help you balance your personal needs with your professional obligations and to help guide you towards making good choices that will sustain you throughout medical school and during your future career. Medical student well-being at Tufts has several components including those that are woven into the curriculum, those that are “co-curricular” and components that are entirely extracurricular in nature. We hope you will take advantage of the many programs and offerings we have including emotional support through our free, confidential counseling program (both in person on the Boston campus and by phone when you’re on rotations), our robust Wellness Offerings from our Office of Student Wellness (including wellness breaks, hikes, stress-less week, nutrition on the fly and many more), our curricular program (Practical Approaches to Wellness), our peer-led mindfulness program (COMPASS), our Healer’s Art elective (for first-year students) and both formal/informal meetings with members of our student affairs and educational affairs staff.
Curricular Wellness Programs
Office of Student Wellness
Our Office of Student Wellness (OSW) has developed a strong program comprised of activities (on campus and off-campus), support groups, lunch talks, wellness gatherings and tips that are a wonderful way to connect with your peers and keep your perspective. The OSW will have you sign a wellness contract during orientation, will give you advice through a bi-monthly newsletter and support you through one-on-one meetings. To reach OSW send an email to email@example.com or to schedule an appointment by clicking this link.
Mental Health Counseling
Tufts recognizes the importance of easy access to confidential mental health counseling. For non-emergent issues, students can schedule an appointment with a counselor from our TalkOne2One program by sending an email to a secure group email account: Tuftscounseling@allonehealth.com. The emails will be responded to by the confidential Talk One2One team and you will receive an immediate reply requesting time preferences, etc. A personal response with your appointment time should be received within 24 business hours of your email. Counselors are also available by phone 24 hours/day, 7 days/week for urgent issues. Please call 1-800-756-3124 to schedule an appointment. We highly encourage students to participate in the counseling program and emphasize that counseling is part of a comprehensive wellness strategy.
