Resident Life

The Department of Medicine fosters balance in our residents’ personal and professional lives. Our collegial work environment promotes collaboration and mutual respect, and our “Wellness Wednesdays” emphasize the importance of resident wellness during clinical training. Recognizing that the practice of medicine is a team effort, we also sponsor social and team-building events throughout the year.​
