Much of the work of the Learner Equity & Wellness office is informed by and done in consultation with our students and residents. The Student Support Team is a group of dedicated student volunteers who operate with the wellness of their medical student peers in mind.
Services offered by the dynamic group include:
Big Sib/Little Sib Program- Second year medical students provide student level orientation and advice to their first year peers.
