Wellness Retreat

Medical School can keep us pretty busy and taking care of ourselves tends to get put to the back burner… this is why, every year, OMSA hosts a perfect weekend for medical students looking for the chance to relax and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle! The weekend usually takes place in March at the Briars Resort & Spa by Lake Simcoe in Jackson's Point, ON. 

This three-day event is for you to focus on your own well-being. As your student representatives, we are committed to the professional and personal development of our members. The OMSA Wellness Committee organizes a series of interactive workshops and activities to provide students with the tools in order to maintain physical, emotional, mental and social health amidst the many demands of a medical education. These workshops will focus on areas such as mindfulness, support systems, nutrition, exercise and more! Our goal is to create a supportive atmosphere where it is appropriate to discuss any stressors and strategies to overcome them.

Check back on this page later for more information and registration details! You will also receive communication from OMSA when more information is available.
