Promoting Resident Wellness and Balanced Lifestyles

We value the importance of a physician’s own health behavior in fostering quality in their personal life.  Therefore, resident wellness is a high priority in this program with bi-monthly didactic lectures coupled with ongoing experiential learning activities that support the health and well-being of residents, while they also go about the task of learning how to become agents of health and well-being in the lives of their patients. 

We encompass the concept of whole person care in our educational program with resident wellness activities such as:

  • Exercise facility with supervision
  • Personalized stress management programs
  • Lifestyle assessments
  • Social outings for residents and families
  • Healthy nutritional options in Doctor’s Dining Room
  • Individualized learning plans for personal wellness
  • Access to community based programs that support self-management

  • Resident input/open door policy

  • Regularly scheduled social activities
  • Picnics
  • Cross-cultural luncheons
