Resident wellness is a priority to us here at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
We are a tight-knit program that understands resident training can be strenuous, and we strive to ensure our residents are happy and healthy. We have multiple events for residents throughout the year, giving our residents time to connect and relax outside of the hospital. KU also encourages and provides resources for all areas of wellness.

The Kansas City metro area is home to many great parks and natural areas for you to explore and recharge with some time in the outdoors. Here are a few of our favorite locations:
The Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) provides a variety of resources to promote emotional, social and financial well-being. Residents in our department are encouraged to explore the GME Wellness site for details on opportunities for social and cultural activities, parent and family resources, creative outlets and more.
Interests and activities outside of anesthesia are both strongly encouraged and supported at the University of Kansas Medical Center. During Anesthesia residency, our Residents are able to enjoy a variety of social activities including sports games, events, social hours, meals and family gatherings.
