Resident Life

As seriously as we take our work, we recognize that everyone – residents, faculty, and other staff – live full lives and have responsibilities and interests outside the hospital, lab and classroom. We support a balanced approach to our academic pursuits, one that makes room for family, friends and extracurricular interests. Residents and Faculty participate in a variety of activities, including a recreational kickball league, weekly pick-up basketball games at the Payne Whitney gymnasium, weekend getaways to state parks for barbeques, beaches, or even trips to New York. In addition, we host several annual events, such as Girls' Night Out, Paintball battles, picnics with the chairman, and the annual department treat – Anesthesia Jeopardy!
