Wellness Spotlight Profiles
The purpose of the student spotlight profiles is to foster positive dialogue about medical student wellness in Canada, as part of the Longitudinal Wellness Initiative (LWI). The LWI seeks to create a continuum of resources and dialogue regarding medical student wellness throughout the calendar year, as an adjunct to the National Wellness Challenge. This encourages students to both consider, create, and maintain healthy habits that contribute to their long-term wellness on a more continuous, sustainable basis.
Students may submit a personal story that encompasses one or more of the following topics: (1) Nutrition, (2) Mental Wellness, (3) Financial Wellness, (4) Physical Wellness, (5) Social/Relationship Wellness.
Submissions should ideally be written in a narrative format, similarly to the “Humans in Medicine” project. They may focus on one theme in particular, or tell a story that encompasses many wellness themes. The above themes serve as general suggestions for student submissions, but certainly do not encompass all aspects of wellness. Students should feel free to submit any personal story that they feel relates to wellness at large. Submissions should reflect the student’s own journey with wellness, and not the experiences of other students. Creative liberty in the writing of submissions is encouraged!
Students will be contacted for follow up within 72 hours of submitting their form, for clarification of any points deemed necessary and to discuss dissemination. Submissions will be released on CFMS social media accounts and the CFMS website, which are both accessible to the public.
