Our residency program is built on a culture of wellness. Our goal is to promote wellness not only within our residents, but throughout our office, with our patients, and in our community. During our longitudinal wellness experience, residents will appraise different aspects of wellness, and create an individualized wellness vision and plan for themselves. Residents will become advocates within the medical and local communities, cultivating a culture of wellness in our program and beyond. An hour dedicated to promotion of wellness is built-in to each week’s didactics, covering topics listed below as well as additional topics guided by resident interests. Wellness is woven throughout the program curriculum in community medicine, sports medicine, ambulatory care, and more.
