Retreats

These are day-long events bringing groups of residents away from the hospital to focus on further developing our sense of community and addressing specific learning needs and topics based on developmental stage.

  • Intern Retreat – All interns gather at the home of a faculty member to discuss stress management, team work, teaching medical students, patient safety principles, fatigue and sleep and other content selected by class representatives.
  • PGY2 Retreat – Held in March of each year, this retreat focuses on career development, teaching skills and wellness. Writing a CV, identifying your strengths and areas for development, interviewing and practical skills to improve teaching are integrated with activities around reflection, team-building and wellness.
  • How To Be A Great Resident (HTBGR) – Prior to completion of the internship, and early in the PGY2 year, residents participate in workshops focused on teaching and leadership, as they transition to the role of senior resident.
