The University of Michigan Department of Neurosurgery has pushed the boundaries of medicine to provide better treatments and produce positive outcomes for patients for 100 years. In order to advance our educational mission of training highly-skilled neurosurgeons with strong backgrounds in clinical neurosurgery and research for the next 100 years, we have identified the need to grow our resident sponsorship program, and to establish a resident wellness program.
We need your help.
In the University of Michigan Department of Neurosurgery, it’s important to us that our residents find joy in their work. To provide residents with strategies to prevent burnout and increase self-care, we have launched the Neurosurgery Resident Wellness Initiative. This effort will ensure that we foster an engaged and resilient physician workforce prepared to address the health care needs of our country.
Your gift supports:
- Nutrition and Exercise: We aim to provide healthy snack and meal options, fitness opportunities such as gym memberships, and incentive programming for healthy lifestyles.
- Well-being and Resilience: We envision offering tools to identify and manage symptoms of stress and burnout, opportunities for team building and camaraderie, and mindfulness training.
- Co-curricular Learning: We will provide opportunities for supplemental skills such as financial planning, business, leadership, and networking to help our residents feel prepared and confident as they take on the next stage of their professional lives.
To enhance our ability to recruit and train tomorrow’s top practitioners, we have launched the Neurosurgical Resident Sponsorship Initiative. This initiative fosters professional development and promotes leadership in the field.
