Resident orientation wraps up with team building exercise

The end of July also marked the end of new resident orientation within the Department of Family Medicine.

To wrap up the month, residents had lunch at Johnny Sortino’s and visited Entrap Games, an Omaha escape room where you find clues and solve a series of puzzles to escape a room with your team.

All four teams successfully escaped their rooms with time to spare. It was a great way to end the orientation month.
