What's Up with Wellness
At Greenville EM, wellness is part of our formal curriculum
As a new faculty member at Prisma Health, one of the things I am most proud of is the priority we place on resident wellness in our Emergency Medicine Residency program. We understand that residency is one of the most challenging times in a physician’s career and are dedicated to watching our residents grow not only in their clinical skills but also in their personal fulfillment. As a result, physician wellness is an integral part of our resident’s curriculum through a combination of mentorship, retreats, and monthly wellness sessions.
Here is how we get it done
Over the past year, we have enjoyed monthly wellness lunches where residents share a delicious meal and glean wisdom on topics from financial wellness to yoga and meditation with guest speakers and faculty alike. This year we are excited to introduce monthly wellness breakfasts during our protected weekly didactic time in order to foster increased faculty participation and an even stronger commitment to making wellness education accessible for our residents. Topics on the docket include feedback, the relaxation response, tackling student loan debt, litigation stress, avoiding the holiday blues, and many others. We will try our best to get outside when the weather allows, especially for our yoga and relaxation sessions! Fortunately in South Carolina, the weather is favorable more often than not.
