The BWH House Staff Council is a dedicated group of elected representatives from each residency training program at Brigham and Women’s that aims to better advocate for the issues we care about, foster community among residency programs, and represent house staff with a unified voice.
Here is a list of some of our recent accomplishments:
Helping to secure funding to introduce a pilot of a free meal for house staff working overnight
Working with Partners GME and Human Resources to offer a new disability insurance policy for house staff that is own-occupation, portable, offers unisex rates, and does not require medical underwriting
Developing Consult Primers to help guide house staff as they consult peers on different services
Advocating for issues to promote gender equity, including ordering extra-small scrubs and “Doctor” identification badges for all house staff
The BWH House Staff Council is open to all residents who rotate through Brigham and Women’s Hospital. We host annual elections for representatives from each program, and all house staff are welcome to attend meetings and events.
