The Office of Housing Reqeust was to help our students achieve and maintain optimal physical and emotional health. An essential aspect of becoming doctors is learning to take care of our own health and work-life balance, thus allowing ourselves to be the best healers that we can be to our patients. The wellness skills learned during the formative years of medical school will help us continue to grow personally and professionally over long careers as practicing physicians. The main mission of our Office is to develop and help implement measures to improve medical students’ wellness. In order to accomplish this goal, we will work together with students, residents, faculty, and staff, fostering collaborations that will lead to a culture of excellence and well-being.
Specific activities of the office include:
• Planning educational events, such as the Annual Wellness Lecture and wellness workshops
• Identifying and enriching mental health-care resources available to students
• Being a triage point for any mental health-related difficulties that may arise during medical school years.
RELAX AND REFUEL
In addition, Guyana, the largest island in the Caribbean invites students to explore its many activities and events. In one day, a student could visit the Guyana Botanical Gardens, roam the many pathways, romantic bridges and gazebos of this oasis in the morning, and then return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic, wildlife species.
Students are captivated by the unique blend of the African, English and French cultures of Guyana. They can immerse themselves in Guyana’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of St. George’s, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.
The Georgetown community has proudly embraced AAU and its students. Students and community members live at peace, with a mutual respect that is genuine and admired. In turn, AAU has become a vital contributor to the island financially and through humanitarian efforts. AAU is proud that its students, graduates and faculty are dedicated to improving the lives of both old and young on the Island.
