This Retreat was sponsored by the UMMC Resident-APP Wellness Committee and was conceived to provide education regarding burnout and wellness in medicine, to equip our trainees with tools to foster resilience, and to promote an opportunity to network and enhance a sense of community. The target audience for this initial retreat was residents in the “middle” of their training (PGY2’s in non-procedural specialties and PGY3’s in surgical/procedural disciplines)  with plans to extend it to other trainees subsequently.
