Social: A Key Component of Wellbeing

Social connections are essential for success in a health sciences graduate degree program.  LEAD offers opportunities for you to develop yourself socially, improve your communication skills, and develop new friends.  By strengthening yourself socially, you will develop your interpersonal and communication skills, two of the top competencies identified for residents by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  Join LEAD in developing your social skills while getting connected with other students, faculty, and staff at WesternU.
