The question of how best to address the wellness needs of health sciences students is an urgent priority, especially in light of the national epidemic of clinician burnout. In this workshop, interdisciplinary presenters from The Ohio State University Health Sciences Colleges will review effective academic strategies that create opportunities for students to maintain wellness, implement self-care, and build resilience. Preparing students to be resilient clinicians requires educators to integrate wellness academic programming into curricula. This workshop will include presentations and discussion to spark novel and innovative educational strategies to enhance the well-being of health sciences students.
