Resident Activities

Annual Graduation Dinner

Congratulations to our six graduating residents from the Class of 2013:  Mary Corbett, MD; Nicole Donaldson, MD; Ava George, DO; Saadia Hussain, MD; Dean Nair, MD; Dupal Patel, MD.  Graduates and their families, friends and colleagues all enjoyed this special event. Good luck in your future endeavors. You will be missed.

Annual Residency Retreat

Every year we have a resident-faculty retreat that is held during our Essentials block in September. We alternate among three different retreat formats, so that each resident will experience all three formats during their residency training. In 2013 our format was Team Problem Solving. This format is a fun competition among three teams that are made up of each residency class with significant others and faculty added in to the teams. Most of the day is spent in a "Problem'Solving Round Robin". Teams are faced with a number of physical and/or mental challenges that let them pool their creativity and practice team leadership. As usual, a great time was had by all, with fun and learning nicely blended together.

Following the retreat, the residents organize their own get-together either at a restaurant or at one of the resident's homes.

Annual Graduation Luncheon

Every year the Center for Family Medicine staff celebrate with the graduating residents by holding a luncheon. All CFM staff contribute to the luncheon by sharing their ideas for a graduation theme or bringing their favorite dish.

There is a “roast” for each graduating resident. Every year is different, as we have an MC who performs skits and interesting facts about the graduating residents. The graduating residents, in turn, share their appreciation to the faculty and staff.

Annual Holiday Get-Together
Social Events/Personal Fun

Although residents spend plenty of time on their rotations and at the hospital, they still have time for family and friends.
