Noorda-COM understands that your physical, mental and emotional wellness are an integral part of your success as a medical student. We are committed to fostering a community where wellness and health are cultivated through both the physical and cultural environment.
As a component of the longitudinal Core Entrustable Professional Activities (CEPA) course, students must complete at least one hour of mental or physical wellness activity each week. Any activity related to mental, emotional, or physical wellness counts towards completion. Because of our unique location, students have access to a variety of beautiful outdoor activities just off campus, and we encourage our students to bike, ski, hike, or meditate in the gorgeous Wasatch mountains. If yoga or baking is more your speed, we support you taking care of yourself in whatever form that takes.
The course also provides instruction in stress-management, physician wellness, mindfulness, fatigue-mitigation and resiliency.
Fitness and Recreation Programs
In collaboration with the City of Provo, Noorda-COM provides all students, faculty, and staff membership to Provo Triple Play access. This provides students with access to all fitness classes at Provo Recreation Center as well as access to the Peaks Ice Arena and East Bay Golf Course.
Student Behavioral Wellness
At Noorda-COM, we understand that the academically rigorous environment of medical school may cause unfamiliar stress. To help deal with that stress, we provide students free, confidential mental health services through the Department of Student Affairs. Noorda-COM’s Student Health services are committed to promoting your health and wellness so that you can better achieve your educational and personal goals. Noorda-COM provides diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic health and behavioral services through on-campus facilities in compliance with all HIPAA regulations during the academic week. We provide from all training locations, 24/ 7/ 365 access to urgent care needs through Intermountain Connect Care and behavioral health services through our relationships with Wasatch Behavioral Health and StudentLinc.
