The Division of Nephrology’s Fellowship Training Program is dedicated to providing not only guidance for a strong clinical training and research experience, but also cultivating an environment that will help fellows achieve an ideal work-life balance.
Tingting Li, MD, MSCI, is our division’s associate program director for wellness. “The wellbeing of our fellows is a top priority for our fellowship program,” says Li. “My role is to optimize a healthy work-life balance. My goals are to create effective ways to reduce stress and avoid burnout and to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment where fellows thrive.”
Li is also the associate program director for clinical research and career development. She helps fellows develop skills and gain hands-on experience in the design and conduct of clinical research projects, as well as providing support and resources in their career planning.
In addition to the wellness program for our fellows, Washington University offers a variety of services to help faculty and staff attain an effective balance between the demands of work and life beyond their jobs.
Here are just a few of the services available:
Work-Life Solutions offers free, confidential, 24/7 support, resources and information for every aspect of your life.
Back-Up Care Advantage Services provides back-up care for eligible individuals when they need to be at work and their regular child or elder/adult care is unavailable.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital Child Development Center offers onsite child care for employees of BJC HealthCare and Washington University School of Medicine.
Infant Nursing Rooms for new mothers.
