Resident Life

Residents on ferry

The University of Rochester's Plastic Surgery Residents have a strong camaraderie amongst themselves and with the faculty. Numerous off-site activities contribute to establishing and strengthening of friendships, and ultimately lead to the creation of a strong team. Because of this, the residents are well-rounded and better able to deal with the stress that they face in their professional life.

The department acknowledges the importance of leading a healthy balanced life. In addition to providing a professionally challenging curriculum, many social and recreational activities are planned throughout the year, including a(n):

  • Intern Welcoming Picnic
  • Summer Outing
  • Resident Retreat
  • Department Holiday Party
  • Match Day Party
  • Annual Roast
  • Graduation Dinner

What our residents say...

"I love living within a short drive from mountains, gorges, waterfalls, beaches, dozens of state and federal parks, as well as the Canada border. I enjoy the summer-long festivals, concerts, and the downtown arts district. I also like the varied restaurants, public libraries, and the Erie Canal trail. Rochester really has something for everyone."
