Part of the exceptional education provided at MGH includes a dedicated focus on wellness with continued efforts to optimize the learning environment.
A devoted Associate Director overseeing this area helps to ensure that training experiences offer an inclusive and safe place to acquire knowledge and skill.
The department has created a space for leadership to discuss and better understand the occupational traumas learners may experience in an academic healthcare setting. These dialogues have seeded the pathways in place to navigate any concerns that arise in a timely and learner-centric manner. Effectively addressing, discussing, and responding to incidents have positioned our learners to feel heard and supported.
If you would like to discuss a concern of this nature please reach out to be connected with a team member who can help.
