Obstetrics and Gynecology Residents Wellness Initiative


During September 2020, the Resident Wellness Initiative was started to directly address the components of burnout in our residents. This initiative includes both faculty and resident driven components.

The faculty driven portion of the Resident Wellness Initiative includes:

  • American College of OB/GYN Wellness Curriculum ( faculty led sessions during resident didactics
  • Faculty donations to Resident Wellness fund
  • Two faculty wellness champions

The resident driven portion of the Resident Wellness Initiative includes:

  • Resident Wellness Committee consisting of one resident from each class and subcommittees to plan activities utilizing resident wellness fund
  • Senior resident/junior resident mentor pairs
  • Wellness Wednesdays: time off during regularly scheduled didactics for residents to complete necessary activities such as doctor's appointments, grocery shopping, or group activities
  • Quarterly Book Club
