Wellness is Key!
In the Dept. of Radiology, we prioritize wellness as one of our core values. We believe that emotional, mental, and physical well-being is one of the most important factors in becoming a physician.
We are extremely fortunate to have a very close resident community, and we work to foster that as a program through our “Resident Wellness Committee”. This monthly meeting is resident-run, with support from department administrators. Here, residents can address wellness, education topics and plan events for the program.
The committee organizes events at least 3-4 times a year for the entire residency. Prior events include monthly happy hours, holiday parties for Thanksgiving/Christmas, canoe trips, crawfish boil, and so much more! We also have a welcome party for new PGY-2 residents, and class dinners with the program director.
Additionally, our faculty have contributed to resident wellness measures as well by funding a resident snack cabinet and well as donating a Table Tennis table to the resident lounge.
We strongly encourage our residents to take part in of the several additional campus wide wellness measures listed below.
