We believe that establishing a healthy balance between work and life roles begins in residency. At Ascension St. Vincent, we strive to promote work-life balance and support residents in caring for themselves first, in order to better care for their patients. We believe this begins with modeling balance among our faculty, while also advocating for residents physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual needs.

We truly believe that our culture of supporting residents is unique and can be felt from the moment you arrive in our program. Members of our Wellness Committee are always happy to discuss ways in which our program strives to care and promote wellness for our residents.
