Wellness is a priority for the program. Post-call days off, encouragement of use of accrued time-off, and an overall ambience of fun, openness, and teamwork help residents and fellows maintain their wellness.  The program also provides textbooks, meal cards, online question banks, and other resources, so that the stipend can be used for other professional expenses.  The program regularly has wellness events (such as dinner outings, social and sporting events, and more). The program routinely incorporates feedback from fellows to implement positive changes for the educational and professional development.  The University also provides wellness services.
