The Residency Wellness Committee was created to advise the residency program about wellness and resiliency. Two residents from each PGY are included on the committee which will prioritize and inform leadership about areas that would impact the whole residency. Some events that have taken place include:

  • Chair massage sessions were organized for residents and fellows.
  • Since the Spring of 2018 each residency class has held an annual weekend wellness retreat. The sessions were intended for team building and preparing for the next academic year. The first year was in Portland, ME and we've then moved to Cape Cod, MA for the retreats.
  • The wellness committee has arranged various events such as: karoake, kayaking, bookclubs, halloween party, BBQ, evening at the Museum of Fine Arts, cooking sessions with a chef and a cookie decorating event.
  • Residents and fellows from both BWH and MGH have gone to Red Sox games at Fenway Park.
