Book Club

Book worms unite!! This relatively new group has been quite a hit! The book club meets every few months to discuss a book (and life!). In our most recent book club we read Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. We discussed resilience and isolation and how that connects to both the the hospital and everyday life, self-care, and gratitude. The group had lots of laughs as people shared what their “ingredients” are for joy. Stay tuned for future events! We hope to make this inperson soon!!

Running Club

Covid has put our running club on hold for now, but hopefully we will be up and running (haha!) soon. 



Wellness Committee 

Anyone can be part of the wellness committee which meets about monthly to discuss wellness initiatives in the program. We are always planning new events and thinking of ways we can all feel more fulfilled. Some great events included the Hartford scavenger hunt PPD where residents followed clues to different historical monuments throughout the city taking selfies along the way for a prize. We also have wellness events at each of the sites. Contact Dr. Savage for more details!

Nephrology Interest Group

 The nephrology interest group is not just for those who plan to pursue nephrology fellowship. It is open to all who are interested in learning! The team loves sharing their knowledge and cool cases, as well as providing mentorship. Anyone interested should reach out to Juan for more details on how to get involved!

EKG Interest Group

 Anyone interested in cardiology (or just to get good at EKGs!), join the EKG interest group that Dr. Kumar has put together. We have a text group and meet a few times a month later in the evening (usually around 8 PM), go over a topic and then review EKGs. Bring any interesting case you have! Email Bryan if you have interest.

Endocrine Interest Group

 The endocrine interest group is for anyone who has an interest in the field of endocrinology. Dr. Kantorovich (Endcrinology at Hartford Hospital), along with Dr. Luthra (endocrinology at UConn John Dempsey) run the group and discuss neat cases, help guide residents for their future in the field, and help facilitate research. Email Juan to get in on the group!

Pulmonary Critical Care Interest Group

Get to know some awesome Pulm crit docs in the field, go over interesting cases, network and discuss research and establish mentoring relationships. Message Garrett if you are interested in getting involved.

Health Equity 

The mission of the Health Equity track is to train the next generation of clinicians committed to caring for disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. The curriculum focuses on developing knowledge and the toolsets needed to address these health inequities in the clinical setting, leading to becoming well-versed in medical and social conditions common to domestic vulnerable populations.In accordance with the ACGME’s CLER Pathways to Excellence and as part of our curriculum in social determinants of health and health equity, the Health Equity team provides information related to equity and disparities on a weekly basis to accompany our ambulatory Yale Office Based Medicine curriculum.  When applicable, each week  community resource/tip to address health care inequities is also provided. Please email Dr. Steele if interested to join.
