Each residency class attends a separate 2-3 day annual retreat, with clinical responsibilities covered by other residents, fellows, and faculty.
Scheduled activities during retreats include: feedback sessions; career guidance and discussions about “Life after Residency”; leadership workshops; talks about risk management and health care delivery; and recertification of PALS and NRP.
Residents participate in many activities available at the resorts. Group refreshment hours and dinners occur nightly.
The PL1 class holds an annual Late-Night Bowling Tournament with a highly coveted trophy awarded to the winning team.
The PL2 class competes in a annual Ping-Pong tournament against each other as well as the Department Chair (the current champion).
