Taking the time to bond with fellow residents outside of the clinical environment is critical to the learning experience and culture of Graduate Medical Education at UCLA. Each residency program is designed to meet the unique requirements of the particular specialty, and UCLA ensures a safe and supportive environment for all residents. Annual recurring Resident Events help to create this supportive, team-building experience in the differing departments.
Chief Resident Conference Resident Breakfast Resident Retreat Town Hall Meetings
All UCLA residents and fellows are invited to attend the Resident Breakfast events, hosted quarterly at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center or a UCLA-affiliated hospital. This is a great time for trainees to build relationships with hospital leadership, GME staff, and one another in a fun and relaxed environment. The next Resident Breakfast is scheduled for Tuesday, September 22, 2015 in the B-Level of Ronald Reagan Medical Center. Please contact the GME office for more information.
Pediatric Residents Fall Retreat
The UCLA Pediatric Residents Fall Retreat takes place at Lake Arrowhead every fall. Team-building exercises are a staple of this retreat, but other components include program development, discussions on quality improvement projects, leadership skills building, and the annual costume party!
As part of our ongoing effort to enhance and improve the quality of UCLA's resident education and training, we periodically hold a confidential town hall meeting with each core residency program. The meeting is held with the DIO, Kate Perkins, MD, PhD and Director of GME, Kim Crooks, PhD. This session, which is offered to housestaff only, provides an opportunity to discuss various issues that directly affect residents' patient care and hospital service experience.
