“Fortunately, during my descent I stumbled across an influential study that was done just across the street, at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, that showed that clinicians who practiced healthy lifestyle behaviors were more likely to counsel their patients to do the same. This realization that my personal health would affect the health of my future patients had a profound influence on me and provided me the motivation I needed to reverse course.”
In a recent survey of over 600 users, Osmosis found that 93.9% of students admit to stress having a negative impact on their education in some way, but only 34% have sought professional help for stress management. This newly launched initiative aims to make mental health care more accessible to medical students, kickstarting their careers with wellbeing at the forefront.
To help health professionals care for themselves, we’ve partnered with Headspace to help them manage stress in a sustainable way. Osmosis members will receive special pricing on their membership with Headspace.
