About COSA Working Group on Medical Student Well-Being
The COSA Working Group on Medical Student Well-being supports the GSA Committee on Student Affairs by providing and soliciting expert input on ways to advance medical student well-being; identifying gaps, opportunities, and collaborations related to student well-being; and socializing student well-being and larger AAMC well-being efforts to the broader GSA community.
