When not working, residents enjoy spending time together. Favorite activities
include attending Royals, Chiefs, or Sporting KC games, playing golf,
or happy hour. Regularly planned gatherings include an annual intern welcome
party, PGY3 halfway party and Graduation for the PGY5s. Also, Journal
Clubs hosted by some of our outstanding attendings. These provide great
opportunities to get to know our colleagues and staff.
Our residents and faculty have developed a wellness curriculum to face
the unique challenges involved in Orthopedic Surgery training.
We have aimed to substantiate wellness by incorporating it into regular
and dedicated conference time.
Our wellness activities focus on service, resiliency, and career development,
and will continue to grow with creative ideas to support and empower residents.
