Resident well-being is of paramount importance to D-H, Graduate Medical Education and our Pediatric Residency Program.  Residents are encouraged to lead healthy lives and make healthy choices that support them in their personal and professional growth.  Our program, along with D-H, offers many excellent resources for residents (and often family members too) to support their well-being.
