Wellness Program

Neurology Residency is fulfilling, educational and, at times, a grueling job. Burnout has been reported in Neurology across the United States among both Neurology faculty and residents.

  • Quarterly individual meetings between residents and the wellness director as mental health checks
  • Monthly burnout meetings between each PGY Class and the Physician Wellness Director
  • Weekend outings including bowling, kayaking, sports, etc.
  • Weekly exercise and meditation classes (available to attend virtually)
