 Annual Retreat for Medical Residents

students gathering as a group for the retreat

​​​​​​​​​Every year all residents and fellows at Marshfield Clinic / Marshfield Medical Center take off a full weekday to spend with the RWBC.

The retreat day is spent off site discussing topics of well-being in residency and career. Self-care activities are also presented and practiced. This is all done in a setting conducive to reflection, relaxation and relationship building. The retreat is a major commitment by DOE and the medical complex to your well-being as it means that the medical center operates for the day without any residents.

Residents and fellows joined together for a beautiful day at Rock Ridge Orchard ​for a series of activities that included the following: yoga and relaxation education, well-being, keynote speakers, homemade pizza and caramel apples, resident skits, chief resident reflections and time to roam the orchard, relax and play. Here are just a few of the photos taken that day,​
