Founded in 2017, the House Staff Council is a dedicated group of elected representatives from each training program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Our Mission Statement
As residents, we are on the front lines of patient care. We are grounded in the day-to-day operations of the hospital, and as such, we are well positioned to identify areas of improvement and provide insightful solutions. Our collective experience represents a valuable voice that should be heard when hospital leaders make decisions that affect our patients and our colleagues.
The Brigham and Women’s House Staff Council aims to better advocate for the issues we care about, to foster community among residency programs, and to represent house staff with a unified voice.
The Council will have members from all residency programs at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and solutions to complex problems will be born out of dialogue from the vast array of clinical specialties we represent. Undoubtedly, the important issues of the day will vary, but the principles of advocacy, community, and inclusive representation will serve as the foundation for the Council for years to come, such that we can all be a part of improving the hospital we care so much about.
