Our Florida Atlantic University Emergency Medicine Residency is dedicated to providing the highest level of emergency medicine training in a culture of wellness among our resident trainees. We have a number of resources that are available to residents to ensure wellness is promoted.
Resilience is typically defined as “the process of experiencing an adversity and managing to maintain a relatively stable trajectory of healthy functioning and adaption.” Our goal is that a concerted effort to increase resilience and wellness among the resident trainees will produce physicians that are less stressed and better able to provide high level of patient care.
