The Resident Resiliency Team is a group of 30 upper-level residents interested in resident wellness. Our aim is to create and support a culture of resiliency and awareness of resident mental health. We are a part of the larger Resident Resiliency Program that is aimed at improving resident satisfaction and decreasing burnout through a multifaceted approach.

- Assist with system-based improvements within the program
What is the resident call system?
The call system is made of third-year residents available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, who help address burnout, debrief after patient deaths, and help residents cope with difficult patient encounters.
