Resident Retreat

The Resident Retreat is an activity that was introduced in September 2014 at the Internal Medicine Department. The goal of this activity is to provide an opportunity that fosters resident wellbeing and enhances the environment of team collaboration. This activity has been a success over the past years and has paved the way for it to be presented as a publication in the International Journal of Medical and Health Sciences (Ghazal, Rahhal, BouKhalil, 2018).
