Resident Wellness Committee

The Resident Wellness Committee (RWC) is charged with improving the resident experience through grass-roots housestaff engagement. RWC members are passionate about positively impacting resident well-being and developing and executing activities that further this goal, with an emphasis on creativity.

Each Internal Medicine Family is represented by one (1) Categorical Medicine or Med-Peds resident representative from each class (PGY-1, PGY-2, and PGY-3/PGY-4) to participate on this committee. The committee of 12 representatives is led by one PGY-3 UTHSC Internal Medicine Wellness Champion. Program leadership representation on the Wellness Committee will include one Medicine Chief Resident and one Medicine Associate Program Director.
