Pediatric Housestaff

Resident Life

Yes, residents do have lives outside of the hospital!

In acknowledgement of the difficulties inherent in medical training and residency in particular, a variety of forums have been established for resident expression, exploration and general support. These include Intern Support Group, Housestaff Open Forum, Happy Hours, Holiday Parties and Resident Retreats. The residents have a formed a social committee which coordinates events outside of the hospital.  They are regularly involved in activities with the faculty, including frequent poker parties at attendings homes and annual bowling and softball matches.

In addition, the pediatric residency program has a social group for resident spouses and significant others, called Network of Resident Partners (NRP). NRP strives to achieve a supportive atmosphere for the spouses and partners of Stanford pediatric residents through group gatherings and networking opportunities. NRP welcomes and encourages friendships between medical families and individuals in order to better reinforce the goals of Stanford residents and their families.
