Pathology Residency Program

Pathology Resident Wellness Initiative


Committee Mission

The Pathology Resident Wellness Committee was established by residents, for residents. The Committee's mission is to cater to the unique needs of pathology residents in order to promote overall resident well-being, including physical, emotional, social, and intellectual wellness. The Committee works to enforce the Physician Wellness Guidelines set forth by the ACGME in conjunction with hospital-wide resident and fellow wellness initiatives.

The Pathology Resident Wellness Committee is hard at work to improve the well-being of our residents. Some of our accomplishments thus far include getting a fourth week of vacation for our interns, providing healthy snack options, sponsoring our first annual Resident Retreat, and arranging a monthly resident coffee and snack social. We are excited about our progress thus far, and we are looking forward to continuing our resident advocacy.
