As a department, we are committed to supporting the wellness of our residents.

Wellness Half-Days

Once every four weeks, each resident has a “wellness” half day during his/her clinic block. 

Wellness Noon Conference Series

The wellness noon conference sessions are led by Linda Golding, from the pastoral care office and Paula Askalsky, MD, from the Psychiatry department to discuss broad topics such as resilience, mediation, and mindfulness techniques. There is also a yearly lecture on sleep deprivation and burnout.

“Neuro Family” Groups

Each resident will be part of a team composed of a PGY1, PGY2, 3, and 4 resident all paired with a faculty member. Faculty members will serve as resources to discuss challenges in both work and life and will meet with the residents several times per year. 

Process Groups

The residents meet every other month with a hospital chaplain or psychiatrist from outside the neurology department to discuss issues related to residency. 

Resident Retreats

Each class has a retreat one day a year during which time they are excused from their work duties for the day. They will have coverage from the other residents and will be able to spend the day doing a fun activity. This allows for a day of team-building and decompression away from the hospital.
