Resident Wellness

The Residency Wellness Committee is a group of residents that get together and plan events to help alleviate stress and support the general well-being and mental health of all the residents. They plan informal social and recreational events that are funded by the department. These outings include paint ball, large group dinners, and out-door activities such as skiing and team sports. In the past they have organized softball games and ping-pong and bowling tournaments between the other local EM residencies. The committee has also been responsible for renovating the resident lounge and organizing a photo contest to decorate it.

Our major undertaking through the fall and winter entails hosting dinners for program applicants the night before their interviews are to take place. This seems to help the interviewees relax and become acquainted with the residents they may end up working with should they match into our program.

Currently, we are planning group outings such as ice skating in Central Park, bowling, another paint-ball trip, a karaoke night, and of course, the annual ski trip to upstate NY or Vermont. The committee is open to all active residents and encourages their participation to help plan future activities.
