The following committees are open to any resident/fellow who is interested in joining!
This resident lead committee was put together to improve and facilitate resident wellness. The specific goals of the Wellness Committee include promoting a healthy work-life balance; providing physical, psychological, social and professional wellness education, and maintaining a peer support and advocacy network for residents. Last year the committee produced Resident Wellness Week.
Special Projects Committee
The job of this committee is to plan, organize and execute short term projects for the Resident Organization. This group has a passion for initiatives that reflect the interests and needs of our diverse resident body. Current projects include updating resident call rooms and implementing a service project.
This committee was created to develop a Resident Support Network which can sponsor events such as adult and family socials, intramural sports, or book clubs to promote further relationships between the different programs. Through this committee we hope to expand support groups for not only residents but also their family members.
The job of this committee is to maintain and update the Resident Council website so residents can be aware of projects the council is working on and find relevant information pertaining to resident life. Another exciting initiative this committee is to re-implement VA access at UAMS to residents who cover both hospital services.
