We appreciate that residency can have its share of challenges and are fully committed to promoting our residents’ well being. Our program supports a wide range of activities aimed to promote wellness by letting residents bond, relax, and just have fun. Throughout the year, residents enjoy organized trips to local pubs, Red Sox games, museums, barbecues, book clubs, soccer matches, and other fun activities. We have Wellness events, noon conferences, and small group sessions planned throughout the year. We also emphasize the importance of family, embracing the idea that an individual may become a parent during residency with a formal policy that accommodates paid parental leave of up to 12 weeks, exclusive of vacation, during any year of training.
