Weekly Wellness Gathering
Each week the Wellness Committee organizes an informal gathering at a local restaurant or pub to provide the chance to unwind and socialize with fellow friends and residents.
Quarterly Wellness Dinner and Journal Club
Four times a year the Department sponsors a resident gathering a local restaurant for dinner and drinks. During the informal dinner, residents discuss a journal article related to resident wellbeing.
At the beginning of the academic year, the Chairman invites all residents, faculty, and family members for a full afternoon picnic at a local private venue. The Chairman’s picnic serves as a wonderful opportunity for new interns to meet the Department and for all to enjoy an afternoon of food, activities, and camaraderie.
During the winter holiday season, the department holds a holiday party for residents, faculty, and their families to gather for food and good spirits.
Chief Resident Graduation Gala
At the close of the academic year, the Department holds a formal gala including the residents, faculty, and spouses, to honor and celebrate the graduating Chief Residents.
Intern Appreciation Day
In recognition of the outstanding work of our interns each year a full clinical day and funds are set aside so that the intern class may enjoy an activity of their choosing as a class. Past events have included kayaking, NYC Harbor Cruise, picnics etc. Residents and Attendings come together to cover services and pagers on this day as a thank you for all of our intern's dedication.
