The University of Oklahoma Internal Medicine Department is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our residents during their training. A core component of maintaining wellness throughout residency is having an optimal work-life balance with ample time to spend with family and friends. Below is a video that will give you an idea of what a typical day in the life of one of our residents looks like.
The wellness initiative was created to build community, prevent burnout, and mitigate stress among the residents. The initiative consists of four principles including physical, social, emotional, and financial wellbeing. It includes gym discounts, taxi vouchers for fatigued residents, confidential counseling, class retreats, residency wide dinners, holiday parties, birthday celebrations, and a number of other activities to promote resilience among the residents.
