Mind & Body Wellness Program

In a newly developed program called Mind & Body Wellness, created by our previous Senior Residency Program Coordinator, Sharona Washington, has fashioned a platform of materials that will help develop both our residents and faculty. The Ophthalmology Department’s Mind & Body Wellness Program will discuss well-being, financial growth and work-life balance which are major priorities in our department. This will help to prevent resident and faculty mental fatigue and maintain their sense of overall well-being, in order to help them become better doctors and individuals. It will also focus on aspects such as burn-out, sleep deprivation, encouraging physical fitness and group activities, mental wellness and financial health lectures, as well as providing counseling services through the university.
