Resident Wellness Initaitive

The TJUH Pathology residency programme recognises that holistic wellness is an important part of a sustainable career as a productive pathologist, leading to the creation of the Residency Wellness initative. The Wellness Initiative focuses on four areas of well-being: professional, physical, psychological, and social well-being. In 2019, wellness activities included faculty-hosted happy hours, rock climbing, and an ice cream social. 

In addition, there is an annual Residency Wellness Retreat, in which residents are relieved of clinical duties for a day to focus on learning new wellness techniques. In 2019, the theme was "Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction".
