Veterinary Student Wellbeing

Our wellbeing pages will be under construction through summer 2021. Thank you for your understanding.

As a veterinary student, you face an extraordinary amount of pressure. Coursework, labs, exams... all of this, combined with financial stressors and the overall expectations around animal care, can be overwhelming at times. The CVM wellbeing team encourages you to peruse the resources below, take a look at some of the CVM-specific webinars available to you, keep up to date on any upcoming college wellbeing events and, as always, please reach out to the CVM Wellbeing Committee at CVMWellbeing@cornell.edu with any questions or suggestions.

Learn more about the seven dimensions of wellbeing via Cornell's Human Resources, and review the resources specifically for graduate and professional students created by Cornell Health here.

Financial wellbeing

Student loan debt can be an overwhelming stressor. Taking time to keep up with your financial responsibilities will help you to avoid the anxiety and fear that comes with the unknown. Focusing on your financial wellbeing now is an investment toward achieving your future goals.
