MSUCOM and SCS Faculty, Staff, Students, and Residents:
Approximately 42% of U.S. physicians report burnout. You are invited to participate in a study that aims to examine whether mindfulness, awareness, and self-reflection can impact burnout levels among medical students and other healthcare providers.
SCS is asking you to participate in this study. The survey and reflective essay takes about 10 minutes to complete. This is a longitudinal study which will require participation every 2 months over the next 6 months (see chart below). The Wellness Modules are about 15-20 minutes. The data collected is confidential and will only be presented in de-identified, grouped results.
Eligible participants will be enrolled for a chance to win a $20 or $50 amazon gift card! If you’d like to enter to win the gift card, please enter your email address at the end of the survey.
Please join the study participants by completing the initial survey using this link.

2021 MOCF Student Impact Initiative
The Michigan Osteopathic College Foundation (MOCF) brings immense value to the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. This year has been remarkably different, to say the least. Not only has it changed the way we’ve been educating our students, but how we’ve been interacting with all our great partners. In 2021, instead of focusing all of our fundraising efforts on the in-person MOCF Ball—we are focusing the next four months on a virtual fundraising campaign which will continue to support student scholarships, student-related activities, post-graduate medical education and outreach efforts.
If you desire to support the 2021 MOCF Student Impact Initiative or would like additional information, please click here.
While there won’t be an MOCF Ball in February, please mark your calendar to join us for a virtual event scheduled for Saturday, February 27 at 5:00pm. More details to come.
For any questions, please contact our office at 517-355-9616 or email.
