Resident wellness is important and represents an integral part of our program. Our EM resident-run wellness committee is active in organizing a number of events both on and off campus. From social events and to volunteering activities and health promoting programs, we value that a balanced resident is best able to provide care to our patients and contribute to our community.
Our 3-day PGY1 retreat in July provides a venue for residents to get to know each other and learn about the program. Team building exercises and mini-lectures focus on a number of important topics including fatigue mitigation, delivering bad news, organizational methods, and leadership among others. We certainly also find plenty of time for some fun in the sun and on the water.
Women in Emergency Medicine
We have a strong group of female faculty within the Department of Emergency Medicine who serve as excellent role models. As a group we make sure to come together yearly.

Health and Fitness
A healthy lifestyle and commitment to fitness during residency can help provide balance. Our wellness committee sponsors a number of health and fitness activities throughout the year. These include yoga sessions before Thursday didactic sessions, sponsorship of the resident/fellow council soccer team, group bike rides and running events, apple orchard visits, and a ‘friendsgiving’ dinner.
