Special Events

Residency is a lot of work, so when we are not working, we like to have as much fun as possible. We have a number of parties and activities throughout the year that have become tradition, although every year they seem to get a bit better. The residency program supports these events with dedicated time off from clinical duties and the resident union helps with substantial funding to use for most of the activities.

Here are a few of the activities we have each year:



Holiday Party

Held in December, we all get together to celebrate the holidays. The night includes dinner, a secret Santa gift exchange, and tons of fun. Fellows and attendings help cover the floors so everyone gets to attend.






End of the Year Party




Held in June, we rent out space at a bar in the city. Food is provided, and we celebrate finishing off our year in style. Fellows and attendings help cover the floors so all residents get to attend.



Beach Week

All interns get the last week of their academic year off. Funds from our resident union help the interns and their significant others rent a house at the beach where they get to relax, have fun, eat well, and celebrate finishing off intern year with a bang.






PL2 Day Off




All second year residents have a day off in the second half of the year. Our resident union helps pay for an outing, which has included in recent years a trip to a baseball game and a barbeque at a park followed by a group dinner.



PL3 Day Off

All third year residents also have a day off in the second half of the year. Our resident union helps to fund the day. Recent examples include a trip to a local theme park, wine tasting, and chartering a dinner cruise on the Potomac.






Pediatric International Moral Promoting Organization (PIMPO)




Standing for the Pediatric International Moral Promoting Organization, this week long group of festivities around Halloween is run by residents and includes activities such as a costume contest, a bake-off, pimp my COW (computer on wheel) contest, and a friendly game of assassin.



Roast

At the end of the year, we have a resident-written, resident-run Roast. Anyone and everyone is fair game, and everyone has a lot of laughs.
