New York City is one of the most beautiful cities in the world — some consider it the “capital” of the world — and our residents take full advantage of all it has to offer. Through benefits as a New York-Presbyterian Hospital employee and Columbia University affiliation, residents enjoy discounts to sporting events, museums, fitness studios, and entertainment. Scheduled time off includes mornings off as interns. Senior admitting residents and junior admitting residents have Fridays off when they are on these rotations.
The CHONY resident-driven wellness committee and residency program is devoted to improving resident wellbeing and work-life balance through organized activities throughout the year such as apple picking excursions, happy hours and socials, and the annual Halloween and Christmas parties. Class retreats are also a feature of our program, where every year one call-free weekend is designated for team building and class retreat fun!
