Celebrating Thank a Resident Day
To recognize Thank a Resident Day Feb. 24, college serves meals, collects messages of gratitude for housestaff
Feb. 24, 2023 — Residents and fellows work tirelessly each day to provide compassionate care to patients, serve as mentors and role models for students and soak up knowledge on the latest innovative techniques and approaches to medicine — all while completing their final years of training.
To recognize housestaff at UF Health for their dedication and commitment to patients and the community, the UF College of Medicine Graduate Medical Education Office hosted several events from Feb. 13-17, from breakfasts and a pasta lunch bar to a pizza dinner.
In celebration of Thank a Resident Day on Feb. 24, an annual recognition by the Gold Humanism Honor Society to pay tribute to residents’ contribution to humanistic care, the College of Medicine Instagram account, @ufmedicine, also prompted followers to share who they wanted to show gratitude for and why.
