Master
Content

Maintaining your physical and emotional wellness is a prerequisite to professional success. Our residents have access to several programs to support their well-being. These include our monthly Resident Society Meetings. These smaller group sessions are led by faculty advisers and follow a curriculum to stimulate discussions related to the many aspects of residency and life as a physician that are important for wellness and preventing burnout. 

Resident Society Wellness Curriculum

  • Introduction to Wellness and Physician burnout
  • Nutrition and Fitness
  • Stress Management and Promotion of self-care
  • Career Development
  • Mindfulness 
  • Financial Wellness
  • Dealing with uncertainty in medicine 
  • Delivering bad news 
  • Management of Chronically ill patients 
  • Gender specific aspects of burnout 

Social Outings

The program hosts several social outings to local restaurants for residents in all years of their training (PGY1-5/6). A retreat to nearby Lake Conroe in the Summer helps with team building and a Spring education retreat helps with ongoing Program development. 

Baylor College of Medicine has additional programs focused on resident wellness. Learn more about these wellness programs.
