Habitat for Humanity
Each year, our wellness faculty leader facilitates an opportunity for residents and faculty to work together on a local housing project for an underserved resident.
Residents, faculty, and/or other staff who demonstrate exemplary performance each week are acknowledged at resident conference in a casual setting that encourages recognition of those who have done something outstanding, or that goes “above-and-beyond”.
During each month that contains five Thursdays, the fifth Thursday is used as a “wellness week” that allows the residents a restful break from the usual learning environment, while still attending to their educational needs. Examples include trips to the zoo or botanical garden with a toxicologist, or pool-side education on work-life balance issues.
Residents have their own dedicated lounge, with workstations and dictation equipment, fully stocked fridge with food and drinks, a flat screen TV with video game systems and leather couches
There are food trucks available at nearly all hours of the night out front of the main facility to take care of those evening and late night cravings.
Tired of the cafeteria food? Need something quick? The snack shack in the main ED provides this – of course available to use with your meal stipend.
Each Resident has their own Faculty and senior Resident mentors who act as a guide throughout residency and to the world beyond
The teaching institution gives prizes, free turkeys or ham each year to all staff members as a kudos
