Resident Activities

Resident Welcome Fiesta

Each academic year we celebrate with our new interns, our residents,faculty, staff and their families with a Mexican fiesta hosted at a faculty home. 


Ice Cream Social

Held at the tail end of the academic year, this event serves as a farewell to our graduating residents as well as a hearty "hello!" to our new interns as they complete the last week of orientation before clinical work begins.

Annual Residents Lunch Out

Residents are freed from clinical services to attend an annual lunch out with their respective class cohorts at local restaurants.

Annual Residents Night Out 

Once a year, our faculty cover all inpatient services so that all of the Pediatrics and EM & Peds combined residents have a night off together. The program organizes a dinner and the trainees participate in fun events like a resident roast where the lower classes roast the graduating seniors.



Resident PGY Class Retreats 

Each resident class has a designated retreat weekend, where the class is freed of clinical duties to participate in  professional development, team building, and wellness activities. These funded retreats include educational activities and social events such as hikes, picnics, bbqs, climbing events, escape rooms, and other team building activities. We feel it is crucial for our residents to have opportunities to engage and have fun together outside of work, to balance some of the inevitable stress that comes with medical training.

Graduation Celebration

The Department of Pediatrics hosts an annual graduation celebration for the Pediatrics and Combined Emergency Medicine/Pediatrics graduates, as well as the Pediatrics Fellows.
