BMC Wellness Program

Welcome to BMC Wellness!Welcome to the BMC Wellness Program Website where you can explore questions and concerns about yourself and colleagues. The BMC Wellness Program is a resource for all providers, teachers and staff at BMC. Wellness can be supported across many domains: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relationship, religious, and social. This website provides information on existing programs and opportunities to help cope with work or personal problems and to promote wellness and health. Most resources are available to everyone, but some are specific for employees at BMC or BU, for BMC residents/fellows, or for BU students.
