Spiritual

The definition of spiritual wellness varies from person to person, but feeling grounded is probably the most common characteristic. The pressures of medical school can sometimes lead students to neglect this aspect of their well-being.

Whether it's through yoga, mindfulness, or a more traditional religious practice, Sophie Davis/CUNY School of Medicine seeks to ensure that everyone has a wide range of options to stay centered and reflective.
