The Resident Wellness Conference (RWC) is an AMA's Physician and Family Support Program sponsored event in collaboration with the Universities of Alberta and Calgary wellness offices, and PARA.

Typically, this conference is held biennially for each of Alberta’s medical school residents in alternating years. This format offers the high level of choice and topics residents have requested. Pre-registration is required; all registration fees are waived, and PFSP provides meals and refreshments. At each past event over 100 residents from 20+ programs have attended RWC exploring and developing practical self-care strategies and techniques together. Following a plenary presentation, residents choose and participate in several concurrent interactive, no tech learning stations. The learning station subjects vary from event to event while usually focusing in the following subject areas:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Developing community
  3. Mindfulness 
  4. Emotional Intelligence / Self Awareness
  5. Family Planning

If you are a physician interested in coaching a station subject, or wish to be involved, please email
