In Reply We agree with Khan and colleagues about the need to implement programs aimed at trainee wellness starting in medical school. Preclinical training offers an excellent opportunity for mandatory sessions to educate students on the issues of depression, suicide, and substance abuse among physicians. Use of screening tools for mental illness and substance abuse with corresponding group sessions may be offered both prior to and during the clinical rotations in medical school to promote resiliency early in a physician’s development.
