Resident Life and Well-Being

At UConn, we understand the importance of promoting a healthy work-life balance. Our Well-Being Committee, led solely by residents, is tasked with organizing social gatherings and other group events throughout the year. Residency is a time of intense training, so we encourage our residents to prioritize their mental and physical well-being in an effort to reduce burnout and build resilience.
