Residency Support Program

Residency is one of the most demanding times for physicians in the beginning in their career. Healthcare professionals in general experience high preexisting levels of burnout throughout their careers as healthcare providers. At BronxCare, our Department of Family Medicine is committed to supporting our residents' personal and professional development and well-being. To assist in decreasing the rates of burnout in our residents, we offer a number of opportunities and services to promote self-care and wellness early in their careers.

          Some of these services include; a monthly support group, academic advisers, behavioral health advisers, as well as workshops aimed toward self-care. These services stride toward preventing future resident burnout while promoting resiliency, increase job satisfaction, and increase their career longevity. However, at BronxCare, we are constantly creating and constructing new wellness programs to help aid our residents and their well being.
