As a premed, do you prioritize balance? Are you aware of and concerned about the consequences of burnout in medical students, residents, and practicing doctors? Have you worked hard to ensure each aspect of your life is optimized, including your studies, hobbies, family life, and health?

Burnout has reached epidemic levels. Studies indicate over 50% of medical trainees or doctors-in-practice have reported burnout. And beyond the physical and mental health risks burnout poses to health professionals, studies prove time and time again that performance is increased when hard work is balanced with intentional breaks, exercise, quality sleep, and passions outside of school and work.

At Med School Insiders, they’re passionate about helping students take a holistic approach to their education and lifestyle. They believe—and have seen the results for ourselves—that exercise, quality sleep, healthy eating, strong relationships, hobbies, and generally taking care of yourself leads to improved performance in your school and work life. When you take care of yourself, you perform better, and you’re also better equipped to take care of others.

Applicable programmes


$3,000 of Med School Insiders services will be awarded to two students who share their experiences successfully balancing school and a healthy lifestyle.
