Resident Retreats

PGY1 Retreat

In the fall of each year, the intern class has a one day getaway full of camaraderie and fun. Through group discussions and activities, interns work on team-building, teaching skills, and ways to maximize educational opportunities. The afternoon is spent in the great outdoors!

PGY2 Retreat

In the month prior to starting their second year, the interns have a day-long retreat to discuss issues relative to taking on senior responsibilities. The goal of this retreat is to give new second year residents the tools needed to be successful senior residents.
