Fellow Well-Being

The UConn School of Medicine Graduate Medical Education is committed to supporting the well-being of all our residents and fellows during their training. For a full list of resources offered through UConn Health, the Capital Area Health Consortium and the broader community, please visit the Graduate Medical Education Office Well-Being website.

The UConn General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program has also implemented initiatives to enhance well-being and successful work/life balance among its faculty and fellows. As burnout has risen among healthcare providers nationally, we have aimed to create an atmosphere of collegiality, support, and professional growth fellows and faculty in our program.

Time Off for Personal and Medical Appointments

As a fellow, your physical and mental health is a priority to both UConn Health and the Division of Medicine. You'll have access to several resources to promote well-being, as well as time off clinical duties to attend appointments.

One-on-One Monthly Meetings With Program Director

Our fellows have regular one-on-one meetings with the program director. In addition, our dedicated teaching faculty here in Farmington are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Monthly meetings with the program director throughout your time in training will serve to review your progress and career goals and ensure that your educational needs are being met.
