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.
At Wayne State we have a wellness program that is catered to fight burnout and improve resilience among neurology residents. Highlights of our program include:
- 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)
