Residency Social Events
Resident camaraderie and morale are important to our program to create a friendly and enjoyable working environment. The Department of Medicine sponsors activities and outings that reflect this commitment.
Department of Medicine Activities
Intern Welcome Reception
At the beginning of each year, a welcome reception is held for the incoming intern class. This is a fun evening that gives the interns an opportunity to meet all the residents and program leadership before starting residency.
Annual Holiday Party
Every December, our holiday party is held at an outside venue. Attendings and fellows graciously cover the services at the hospital to allow all to attend. Faculty are also invited to attend.
