Resident Wellness


Promoting an educational climate centered on Wellness has always been a core tenet of our residency program. Through collaboration between our Wellness Committee, program leadership, and Yale Resident and Fellow Senate, a multitude of annual Wellness Initiatives have been developed.

Our Wellness Committee is comprised of residents, Chief Residents, and core faculty members. The Committee meets monthly to schedule and promote events aimed at improving Wellness both within and outside of the hospital environment.
