MSS Hikers for Health

Club week video

About the club

Our idea for this club came from a love of the outdoors, seeking adventures and getting to know each other better and bond over an activity that is just as beneficial for our physical and mental health. Created by 2 graduates from a bachelors in psychology, we have at heart the wellbeing of medical students and know just how amazing physical activity and the contact with nature is for alleviating stress and simply be present in the moment. Hiking is for both of us an important live of our lives and we want to share this passion with our fellow classmates, from all years of the MDCM program by organizing hikes once a month and also encouraging members to share with us their personal hikes and experiences in nature. We want to create a beautiful and encouraging community for the medical students who share such love for hiking.
