The OB-GYN Program has implemented a half day of resident wellness on the 5th Friday of the year from 7 to 11 a.m. The residents decide how they will spend this half day. They are protected from clinical duties during this time.
- On the 5th Friday in the Spring, the residents have a retreat to boost morale and for team building. They set personal and team goals for the upcoming academic year. The residents are protected from clinical duties from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. when just the call team needs to return.
- Attending coverage is provided from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. so that all the residents can attend regional events such as Junior Fellows Day and Resident Education Day. These events are a wonderful opportunity to interact with residents from other programs in the area.
- Journal club, while a work event, is done at a faculty member’s house, creating a social environment where the faculty and residents can connect in a relaxed environment.
