The following initiatives are ways we help our residents find a healthy work/life balance.
The mission of the Wellness Committee is to create a culture of wellness by fostering an environment that encourages and promotes the well-being, mindfulness, and resilience of Duke Radiology Residents through activities and initiatives in the workplace, as well as extra-curricular activities focused on physical and mental health. The Wellness Committee is composed of one member from each residency class, regardless of whether the member is DR or Integrated IR resident.

Final Fridays are a long-standing resident tradition where on the last Friday of each rotation, the residents enjoy drinks and quality time with each other after work. This happens once a month at different locales and breweries across Durham -- they are a great way to catch up with co-residents over a refreshing beverage on the department's dime!
The Resident House Program was initiated nearly five years ago to facilitate peer support and mentoring. There are four Resident Houses (House Becquerel, House Curie, House Gray, and House Roentgen) with each House consisting of twelve to thirteen residents. At the beginning of the academic year, every incoming first-year resident is welcomed into one of the four Houses. Several on-campus Resident House lunches are organized throughout the year and off-campus House get-togethers are encouraged.
