We expect that part of the educational experience for residents will be to learn to balance recreation and professional demands.
Many residents gather to socialize on a frequent basis, including monthly potluck dinners for some classes. Our residents take advantage of much the region has to offer, including swimming, biking, camping, playing hockey, skiing, and sea-kayaking.
A summer picnic, winter holiday party, and graduation celebration are annual events for faculty, residents, and staff. Golf scrambles and culinary contests (who can make the best chocolate cake?) are other events that help foster the spirit of camaraderie which is one of our program’s greatest strengths.
An annual weekend retreat on Bartlett Island is an excellent opportunity for all of us in Family Medicine to enjoy Maine ’s natural beauty together off the coast near Acadia National Park .
