About the Wellness Committee

The Spokane Teaching Health Center and Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center have implemented a Wellness Committee into our GME department. The committee consists of residents, faculty and administration from the GME office to create a diverse setting for wellness enhancements. Currently, we have 20+ members on the committee, including our DIO for the Spokane Teaching Health Center. The diversity in experience and job roles helps us better understand ways to implement wellness into our GME community, including wellness for the supportive staff for the residents and faculty.
