This month, UNMC is hosting two events to recognize our hard working residents!
On February 22nd, the UNMC chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) participated in National Thank a Resident Day, an event designed to shed light on how vital the house staff are to healthcare institutions both in providing outstanding healthcare as well as teaching medical students. Says Connor Mullhall, the M4 who organized this year’s event, “We are very appreciative of our residents and are so excited to have an opportunity to share that appreciation with them.”
The UNMC chapter of GHHS hand-wrote “thank you” notes to all 514 Nebraska Medicine residents, delivered Eileens Cookies, and organized and hosted an appetizer and milkshake event open to all UNMC residents. The thank you notes included the poem shown in this article’s feature image, written by Dr. Kelly Cawcutt in February 2018.
On February 28th, UNMC and Nebraska Medicine are also hosting a House Officer Appreciation Day! Members of UNMC leadership shared statements of gratitude for the hard work and dedication of our residents here in the UNMC newsroom.
Residents are at the heart of our institution, working tirelessly to ensure our patients receive the best care and train students who aspire to be like them some day. At these events we celebrate the hard work they do every day. Thank you to our residents for their compassionate care, dedication to our patients, and education of our students!
