Residency Events

Our residents, faculty and staff are involved in many activities outside of the office. We have a Wellness Committee run by our very own residents. This committee meets regularly to discuss topics related to work-life balance and to plan events to help promote this balance throughout the year. Here are some of the annually celebrated events:

Intern Welcome Event

Each year the senior residents thrown an intern welcome event for the incoming intern class during orientation.

Residency Retreat

In 2015, our residency had our first resident-only retreat. Residents spent two days cooking together, doing team-building challenges and bonding over indoor and outdoor games.


Our residents, faculty, staff and their families join every Tuesday for an evening of fun competition again other Glenview Park District softball teams in a recreational league.

End of Summer Barbeque

One of our faculty members hosts an annual BBQ to bring the entire residency and their families together to celebrate the end of summer and beginning of fall.

Chicago Marathon

Residents and faculty volunteer as medical staff for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.


Each spring, current and former residents get together to display their talents in a talent show to raise money for a good cause. Some of the talents include singing, dancing, playing instruments, games shows and so much more!
