Residency Well-being Committee

We are a group of residents, chief residents, and faculty who meet regularly to develop and enhance well-being initiatives at the individual and system level for the Internal Medicine residency program.  wellbeing committee

We view well-being holistically as more than the absence of burnout.  We aim to identify and address cultural and organizational contributors to well-being, while supporting individual needs and skill development for self-care, in order to create a thriving residency community.
