Wellness is a concept of optimal well-being, an essential component for medical students at the personal and professional level. While medical education and healthcare service demand an efficient coping reservoir and resilience, but greater burnout and psychological morbidity is being reported among medical students. Responsibility to address the concerns about well-being lies in medical schools, but there is a lack of awareness and nonavailability of such adaptive resources. In this article, we highlight the concept of wellness and its relevance in the context of medical students, models described in the literature for this purpose, and recommendations for wellness of medical students.
