 While it may look a little like that hotel in  The Shinning , Hueston Woods Lodge located about one hour from Cincinnati, is the welcoming sight of our yearly retreat. [Editor's note: while some of the picture may suggest otherwise, it does not always snow]

The Wellness

The Purpose 

As required by the ACGME, every residency program must have a yearly time for the residents to focus on program improvement and evaluation. We are lucky that our retreat also focuses on bonding and fun! Held over two days in March each year, the Family Medicine Retreat is a time to talk about goals for the program, suggest improvements, and take the all important group photo.

Our wellness committee, lead by Rory and Melissa, nailed the fun part of retreat. Not only did they stage an "escape game" (based on pizza and zombies) they also arranged an evening bonfire- with smores for everyone (including vegan options). And while it was a little cold for a hike, we did guided meditation which is almost as good (and better if you ask the Californians).
