A fruitful retreat

Once a year, the Penn Neurology Residents (adult and pediatric) hold an off-site retreat. During this day-long program of fun and reflection, the hospital services are covered by Attending faculty, allowing all residents to attend the event.

This year, the retreat was held at a local orchard. In between apple picking, pie making, and marshmallow roasting, the residents discussed topics related to the organization and operation of the residency program. Ideas and initiatives developed during these retreats are proposed to the program leadership and implemented over the coming year. For example, this year's discussion included a consideration of a night-float vs. call-based system of coverage for one of the hospital services.
