Resident Wellness

We recognize the stress of medical training and are dedicated to providing our residents the tools and support they need to care for their well-being. We value work-life balance and have several programs in place to help ensure wellness. Residency training is the best time to develop healthy routines that are more likely to be long-lasting. We created a program that includes a stipend for activities that promote sustainable healthy habits, including, but not limited to:

  • Gym memberships
  • Fitness classes
  • Annual park passes
  • Season passes to sports and art events

In addition, residents may take advantage of the Strive Wellness Program, which offers nutrition counseling, fitness classes, yoga, massage, smoking cessation, biometric assessment and monthly wellness initiatives at low or no cost.

Residents are also provided one-half day off per quarter to maintain preventative medical and dental care and other needs that are best handled during the weekdays and business hours. Team building and leadership exercises are included in the curriculum as well, including annual resident retreats.

Group Wellness Activities

Work-life balance, wellness and team building are key elements of our program, and we offer many group wellness opportunities throughout the academic year for residents to connect and unwind.
