Duke Radiation Oncology prioritizes Resident Wellness.
Understanding that 21st Century Medicine can sometimes be a challenge for providers and trainees, Duke Radiation Oncology has started a number of initiatives to support the well-being of our trainees, including:
- ½ day (off pager) every four months, in addition to vacation, for medical/dental appointments
- Dedicated Resident Wellness funds, directed by the Residents, to support Resident Wellbeing
- Dedicated, protected time in the didactic schedule for Resident Wellness activities
- Expanded leave for primary and secondary caregivers
Prior Wellness activities have included pet therapy and teambuilding exercises.
Duke GME has a number of additional offerings including free meals, an in-hospital fitness center and others that can be found on their website.
