BWH Radiology takes resident, fellow and faculty wellness seriously. Catherine Geiss, MD, a breast radiologist, is our department’s Chief Wellness Officer. She oversees Wellness related events and activities for the entire department. Additionally, we have several resident representatives that also serve on a Resident Wellness Committee. The committee oversees organizing various wellness events. Ongoing and past wellness activities include:
Monthly resident social events funded by the department, including mixers with other specialties
Annual resident retreat
“Escape the Room” event for team building with the first year residents
Welcome event, Holiday/Winter party and Graduation/End-of-year celebration hosted by the department
Wellness Bike Ride
In October, 2018, we held our inaugural resident retreat. The retreat was attended by all residents and the educational leadership team and was organized by the Resident Wellness Committee. The day included fun team-building activities such as a scavenger hunt and “pictionary telephone”, as well as focused class-reflections and design thinking breakout sessions.
