The Department of Anesthesiology is committed to promote health and wellness of all of its members including faculty, clinical anesthetists, residents, medical students, administrators, and staff.
The goal is to establish a strong wellbeing and work-life balance of all members of the Department of Anesthesiology, including faculty, residents, fellows, CA’s, APP’s, NP’s and administration. As part of an ongoing effort, the Wellness Committee has started a few initiatives including it’s own Peer Support Program.
The Wellness committee is open to all Department Members. Please contact Co-Chairs for more information about joining the committee.

Confidential, legally protected connection to a clinical peer for support after experiencing difficult and stressful work events.
