Department Social Events The best learning environment is one where people feel comfortable and included, like a working member of the team. We are able to foster camaraderie and teamwork by including events for our residents outside of the hospital to better get to know each other as well as have some fun. These programs go on throughout the year and are able to introduce residents to the surrounding area, where there is a bunch to do! Popular events include: Finger Lakes Wine Tour: Acclaimed for the best wineries in the region, this trip to Keuka Lake visited multiple wineries for a delicious day trip. Ski Trip to Hunt Hollow: A great way to see the surrounding area and get a great day on the slopes for all those snow sport enthusiasts . Annual Rochester Red Wings Baseball Game: The program springs for an outdoor suite so the residents can enjoy a one of the popular Red Wings baseball games, a barbecue, and post-game fireworks The department holiday party has been held at the Rochester’s historic Memorial Art Gallery, and has been a fun night of dinner and dancing for the whole department. A department throws a summer picnic catered by the world-famous Dinosaur BBQ. There’s entertainment for the whole family and even a bounce house for the kids. Faculty, residents, and other members of the department can eat, relax, and get to know each other.
