MedTreks Wellness Resources

Part of our commitment to helping expand the global health workforce is also recognizing the immense mental, emotional and physical burnden healthcare workers face each and every day. It is why we began incorporating Wellness & Adventure Retreats into the programs and trips that we offer. These workshops and wellness retreats are designed to inspire healthier and happier lifestyle habits for healthcare professionals. MedTreks partners with yoga instructors and retreat leaders from around the world to provide these experiences for medical professionals.

Learn a variety of tools to help prevent workplace exhaustion, stress and burnout. Spend the week relaxing and recharging with yoga, massage, meditation, and delicious plant-based meals. There will be workshops on stress-reduction, rejuvenation exercises, workplace wellness, healthy eating & cooking. You can learn more by clicking the link below.

We have also collected various Health & Wellness resources that is free for you to browse and explore on this page. 

We hope you find the information helpful!
