 Annual Retreat for Medical Residents

students gathering as a group for the retreat

​​​​​​​​​​Every year all Marshfield Clinic Health System residents and fellows take a full weekday off from regular duties to attend the annual RWBC wellness retreat.​

The retreat is hosted off site and focuses on discussing topics of well-being in residency and career. Self-care activities are reviewed and practiced. The event is held in a setting conducive to reflection, relaxation and relationship building. The retreat is a major commitment by Division of Education leadership, residency/fellowship training programs, and the organization as a whole to your well-being.  MCHS medical centers commit to functioning for the day without residents and fellows.​

The 15th annual residents/fellows retreat was adjusted to meet the requirements of pandemic safety.
