Resident Life at Columbia Medicine

INTERN RETREAT

 

For 48 hours, you are unpageable.  Intern Retreat is one of the most anticipated weekends of the year, and serves many purposes for the first-year class.

 

Aside from a brief vacation from busy services, this weekend is a bonding experience for the interns, and many classes come away from the trip with memories to last a lifetime.

HOLIDAY PARTY

 

Our annual takeover of the Manhattan Penthouse is one of the most anticipated Friday nights of the year.  Our fellows graciously cover the inpatient services to allow the entire program a night off to enjoy our company outside of rounds.  No faculty allowed.  

 

Dancing is mandatory (read your employment contract closely).

JUNIOR-SENIOR DINNER
 

What does a hospital run by interns look like?  Visit Milstein and the Allen on this one Thursday night in late May to find out.

 

The Junior-Senior dinner cannot be put into words - which is why we use photos and videos.  All of your best and worst moments in one evening, followed by more mandatory dancing.  (If you haven't noticed, there's a theme to our extracurricular activities.)

From Our Residents

Residency at Columbia has given me the opportunity to be part of a system that welcomes diversity and quickly makes you feel at home. It has certainly been a privilege to work in a setting that fosters underserved communities and mediates exposure to treat a wide array of disease in a challenging learning environment driven towards growth as well-rounded physicians while providing high quality patient care.
