Fellow Life Our fellows enjoy a collegial learning environment at work as well as active social lives outside of the hospital. Our hard work in the hospital is nicely balanced with frequent informal, relaxing social events in our free time. Our fellows' room is a comfortable place to discuss difficult patient cases, share on-call experiences or just hang out and decompress. After work we meet as individuals and families for events such as board review, poker night, paintball, drinks at local bars, and dinner at local restaurants or at fellows' homes. Rochester is a very livable, affordable medium-sized city, first built on the Genesee River and eventually the Erie Canal.

The area boasts not only a stable economy and affordable housing in beautiful locales, but also some of the nation's best public schools. Rochester has a wide variety of cultural happenings and social events, including music, art and nearly weekly festivals during the warm months, which caters well to the varied interests of our fellows and their families. Rochester has many minor-league sports teams, with major league teams in the close vicinity for our sports enthusiasts.
