Wellness

Our program recognizes the importance of the emotional and mental well-being of our residents. To reduce physician burnout, we have established a culture that supports personal health and wellness.
 
  1. Resident wellness committee – A resident-led committee, focused on providing support and resources for their colleagues, plans in-house relaxation activities and social gatherings outside of work to promote compassion, self-care, and individual growth.
  2. Self-care Debriefing Sessions – A specific initiative of the wellness program is helping residents learn how to cope with death and emotionally challenging cases. Through regular sessions, residents and attendings confidentially share experiences, express emotions, and learn various grieving techniques to facilitate the coping process and encourage overall wellness.
  3. Spring & Fall Retreats - Designated residents-only retreats focused on team building, community outreach, and individual wellness.
  4. Hospital Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – This program offers a wealth of information, support, and online resources at no cost. Caring and empathetic counselors are available to residents and their families.
  5. Fitness Center – Residents have 24-hour access to the hospital fitness center.
  6. Seton Cove Spirituality Center – Offers people of all faiths the opportunity to nourish and foster their journey towards wholeness. Through a variety of seminars, classes and events led by a multidisciplinary faculty, Seton Cove is a place apart, a refuge to deepen one’s spiritual practice.
