About Us

The Well-Being Advisory Committee (WAC) helps embed well-being into the Faculty of Medicine for our faculty, staff and learners. Our Well-Being Themes help guide this important work. They were created based on the recommendations from the first wellness survey and the Okanagan Charter.


  • The WAC reports to the Senior Executive Committee (SEC) of the FoM, providing oversight and insight on well-being strategies and initiatives, services, resources and indicators already in place.
  • Promotes the conditions that ensure well-being.
  • Explores benchmarks of success in the promotion and support of well-being for all learners, faculty and staff.
  • Develops well-being strategies and initiatives.
  • Administers well-being surveys.
  • Evaluates the effectiveness of new programs and services.
  • Measures the impact of initiatives overtime.
