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.
