We attract a diverse group of residents with a wide range of interests and from a variety of unique backgrounds. They quickly find themselves becoming part of their own community—a community of residents. They learn to work with one another while treating patients. They support each other in the hospital and in all clinical arenas. And the sharing doesn't stop at the end of the day: socializing after-hours—the parties, barbecues, happy-hours, weekend retreats—all lead to friendships that last a lifetime.
