The GME Wellness Subcommittee, chaired by Brenessa Lindeman, M.D., Associate DIO for the Clinical Learning Environment, reviewed all submitted applications in May 2018. Based on the selection criteria of project purpose, design, budget, and overall impact, three applications were selected for funding. Award winners were finalized in June 2018. The following programs and their projects were awarded financial support from the GME Office that is matched by their respective department. Please see the UAB GME Department wellness web page for available resources to support resident and fellow well-being.
