Integrating Wellbeing Into the Curriculum: Learning Objectives and Assessment Toolkit

In 2017, the AAVMC released a competency-based veterinary education framework that includes “attends to wellbeing of self and others” as a core competency. Subsequently, many colleges are now exploring ways to incorporate wellbeing principles and stress management skills into their core curricula. This includes developing a four-year integrated wellbeing curriculum that will allow students to cultivate emotional intelligence skills and develop wellbeing strategies that will support them as students and throughout their professional careers. This presentation will cover the outcomes of the AAVMC Wellbeing Curriculum Competencies Working Group including; the list of potential wellbeing competencies, learning objectives, assessment tools, and potential implementation points.
