She brings with her to the role of Wellness Lead Clinician a real desire to help support residents during their residency training. The Wellness Lead Clinician is responsible for oversight of the Postgraduate Medical Education Wellness Program, as well as providing direct support to our residents. The Wellness Lead Clinician also represents the wellness interests of all residents to NOSM and its programs, including providing education, consultation and supports to faculty and administrators. Although the Postgraduate Wellness Program was only started in 2017, it represents an essential resource for residents and fellows.
Most importantly for you the postgraduate learner, the Wellness Lead Clinician acts as a confidential resource to residents and fellows who need support. If you have a wellness concern that may affect your training, or vice versa, please feel free to contact Dr. Logan as a resource and as a link to other support services.
The Wellness Lead Clinician is supported by our PGME Coordinator, Ms. Jaimy Kiiskila. The Resident Wellness Program is also strongly supported by our Wellness Advisory Group which is composed of residents, faculty, staff, and administrators who meet regularly to steer the program and respond to residents’ needs.
Residency has the potential to be the most rewarding, formative, and enjoyable time of your life. If you are struggling or just scraping by, please do not hesitate to reach out!
