Wellness, Fatigue Mitigation, Clinical Experience and Education


Wellness is a core institutional priority at Baylor College of Medicine. To this end, we will:

  • Provide housestaff and faculty with resources for anonymous self-screening of burnout, mental health and substance abuse with access to resources for those needing assistance;
  • Establish resources to mitigate fatigue including but not limited to transportation, daytime nap rooms and overnight call rooms, and 24 hour access to food;
  • Form a centralized Wellness team to promote and support well-being as an integral part of training and education.
  • View the GME Orientation Wellness FAQs.
