Extracurricular Opportunities

Our residents and faculty maintain active lives outside of the clinical setting. Explore below to see some the  social and service activities in which residents and faculty have participated.

Social Activities

Our residents and faculty strive to balance their busy work schedules with time for family, friends, and social activities. We schedule several seasonal events to ensure adequate time to become fully acquainted with colleagues and families.

In addition, interns have a long-standing tradition of meeting outside of work on at least a monthly basis for more fun and games.

Each fall we do a retreat with all the residents, faculty, and their families. This is a wonderful time to get to know one another better and enjoy some time together outside of our typical work setting!
