Resident Events

Internal Medicine residents at the KU School of Medicine-Wichita unwind with several fun events throughout the year. 

Orientation Welcome Party

This is the best way to meet the newest additions to the resident family. The dinner has traditionally been held at Riverside Brewing Co. and is a great opportunity for incoming residents and their families to mingle with colleagues and attendings. 

Christmas Leg Wrestling

An Internal Medicine tradition for more than 35 years, residents and faculty celebrate Christmas at Dr. Donna Sweet's house and compete against each other in a Leg Wrestling tournament. Winners get a trophy and bragging rights for the year.

Christmas Lights Tour

Another way for residents to celebrate the holidays each year. 

PGY2 Retreat

Residents receive a half-day of educational and interactive lectures covering career-oriented topics such as interview skills, building your CV, debt management, malpractice insurance, and contract negotiation. The remaining half of the day includes fun team-building activities. 

Graduation Party

Graduates receive diplomas and residents from all PGY levels may receive awards at this dinner and reception. The coveted "Chalice of Champions" clinic award is given to the most outstanding clinic group. The evening ends with an after-party organized by the graduating class.
