In addition to clinical rotations, our internal medicine residents have several leadership opportunities.
Program Evaluation Committee (PEC):
A junior and senior resident are encouraged to join the Program Evaluation Committee that looks at the overall running of the internal medicine program. Resident input is highly sought to better understand the gaps residents experience in their learning experiences and solutions to such gaps. Resident input is also sought to better understand and work toward improving both the didactic and bedside learning/teaching experience.
Resident Wellness Committee:
Resident are encouraged to join this committee which looks at improving the wellness of residents as they progress through their residency. This committee looks at innovative way to include fun, ice-breaker activities and social events to help with bonding and to help enhance the resident learning experience. This committee also helps address and mitigate fatigue that is commonly present in many medical residents worldwide.
Two residents are nominated to this council and represent the entire resident body. This council meet with the Department of Medicine leadership, Program Director and Chief resident to discuss concerning matters that resident face as a whole during their residency. The leadership is strongly committed to enhancing resident education and welfare and with resident input, the council looks for ways to remedy genuine concerns.
