R1 Retreat: Intern Week Retreat
At the Intern Week Retreat, residents enjoy a week-long opportunity to become better acquainted with each other.
Three months into their residency, interns participate in a week-long retreat. In a relaxed setting away from the hospital, it’s an opportunity for the residents to become better acquainted with one another and explore relevant issues and key relationships. Community physicians and hospital faculty and fellows pitch in to cover the interns’ day and night shift responsibilities.
Faculty, nurses, parents and other professionals participate in this week of education and interactive sessions, such as Residents as Teachers and Care of a Dying Child. In addition to the camaraderie this retreat fosters, it serves as rich platform for their professional development and consistently proves to be an incredibly fun, meaningful experience.
