Residents celebrate 1st month of residency

Our program’s greatest strength is its camaraderie and cohesiveness. With the full support of Nebraska Medicine, our own Internal Medicine Resident Life Program has set out to tackle resilience and burnout on a resident level by providing social events, networking sessions, mentorship groups and interactive conferences to promote individual wellness both at work and at home. Guided by the 8 domains of wellness, this flexible group is able to respond to current resident needs and provide support during their training. Some of the wellness initiatives achieved thus far are listed below.
