Program Social Events

In addition to specific Med-Peds events, the residents are active in the social cultures of both departments.

Here are some typical annual events through Med-Peds, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics programs:


  • Switch Night: A senior-led and organized event before the first big switch between the categorical parent programs, designed to reduce intern anxiety.
  • Intern Welcome/Senior Farewell: Prior to the end of the year, all of the Med-Peds residents come together to meet the new interns and say farewell to our seniors.
  • Annual Med-Peds Business Retreat: A local retreat to socialize, address program issues, and brainstorm ideas for program improvement.
