Vanderbilt Neurology Wellness

A sense of wellness – both personal, professional - is vital to a vibrant academic environment, which is why it is a core value at throughout VUMC and part of our “Pillar Goals”. The Department of Neurology formed our own Wellness Committee in 2017  to achieve these goals.

Our core aim is to foster an environment in which trainees, faculty, staff can all say to themselves

  • My work is meaningful and my own creation
  • I have the personal and environmental resources I need.
  • The person next to me is in the same boat…. and we are going places!

Resource Page

VUMC has a rich array of wellness resources including

  • Finding your people for support and interest-based affinity group
  • Managing both acute and chronic stressors at work and home
  • Ideas for fun, extracurricular activities (with some discounts!)

I am committed to my colleagues

Karl has always been the first to step up if a colleague needs help. He came every Sunday last year when volumes were busy. He has been working without a break from June till September so that the rest of us don't burn out. He does this without complaint even though it's a very difficult thing to do. He exemplifies what this award is all about.
