Wellbeing Project

Wellbeing Project

Our faculty in colaboration with University of Pécs HU, Medical University of Gdansk PL, and Medical Faculty Hradec Králové CZ is participating in a project

The wellbeing program gives everyone the opportunity to maintain physical and mental health. Faculties are largely influenced by the staff and students of the organisation. We want to give more opportunities to the citizens of the Visegrad region to shape this community together, giving space to community needs and ideas. The concept of wellbeing provides a vision for human resources development. The main goal is to ensure that people working and studying in medical schools feel proud and happy to work and learn, and feel physically and mentally well as part of the community.

Activities

1. Sharing of good practices and exchanging of the experiences in the area of wellbeing of at the kick-off event

2. Need assessment (physical infrastructure, community, environment), questionaire

3.  Joint development of a transnational mentoring program

4. Joint online training, to appoint and train the mentors based on the results of the mentoring program

5. Disseminating results for wide range of stakeholders at closing event and via social media
