Education / Graduate Medical Education / Prospective Residents / Cardiothoracic Surgery Integrated Residency Program / Resident Life Resident Life Our residents 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 within our group and with other colleagues. We have a call room and an office that are comfortable places to discuss difficult patient cases, share on-call experiences, or just to hang out and decompress. After work we meet as individuals and families for events such as bowling night, paintball, drinks at local bars, and dinner at local restaurants or residents’ homes.
