Resident Wellness

The University of Tennessee - Nashville and Ascension Saint Thomas are dedicated to providing high quality educational experiences, while simultaneously fostering a culture of wellness in our residency training programs.

Our campus-wide approach to resident wellness is led by the UT-Nashville/Ascension Saint Thomas Wellness Committee; which is comprised of faculty and residents from each training program. Through their sponsorship of activities and programs related to various aspects of well-being, provision of resources aimed at supporting well-being, and availability to residents across the Nashville campus, the committee works to ensure wellness is promoted within all UT-Nashville residency programs.

Specific goals of the wellness committee include:‚Äč

  • Promote a healthy work life balance.
  • Provide physical, psychological, social, and professional wellness education.
  • Maintain a peer support and advocacy network for the residents.
