Resident Social Life
The Program Director, along with the Department of Medicine faculty, welcomes the new residents, by hosting a Welcome Reception. This is a Cocktail and Hors D'oeuvres style reception and it provides an opportunity for the newly arriving house staff and guest to get to know the faculty members they will be working with.
The Department of Medicine welcomes the new residents and their families in the summer, inviting them to a social picnic at a local picnic venue. This provides an opportunity for the newly arriving families to get to know each other.
Recognition Dinner (Graduation Dinner)
At the end of the academic year, there is a formal graduation awards ceremony, attended by all residents and a guest, as well as faculty and staff. The purpose of this dinner is to say good-bye & best wishes to those graduating from the program and to recognizing residents and faculty n the program for various teaching awards.
Residents are often found organizing, assisting or partaking in various Volunteer/Charity Events throughout the year. Usually this is done in organized groups or teams. It makes the Department of Medicine proud that we have wonderful residents that feel the need to give back to their community.
