Resident Wellness Conference

Thank you, resident physicians!

PFSP is pleased to have hosted another successful Resident Wellness Conference. We sincerely hope you found the stations useful, and we look forward to many more opportunities to engage with you all in the future!

Looking for resources from sessions, station references, materials and links to additional tools?

Thank you all, again! Please feel free to email us at should you have any questions.

This conference is held biennially for each of Alberta’s medical schools, University of Alberta and the University of Calgary, in alternating years. This format provides the high level of choice and topics residents have requested and replaces the previous practice of PFSP providing ad hoc sessions for individual programs.

In the fall of 2017 PFSP hosted the RWC in Edmonton for all residency programs of the University of Alberta. Over 100 residents from 23 programs attended RWC exploring and developing practical self-care strategies and techniques together. After the plenary presentation, residents were able to choose and participate in five of the ten different learning stations that focused on the following subject areas.

    1. Communication
    2. Nutrition
    3. Teambuilding
    4. Feedback
    5. Mindfulness
    6. Life hacks
    7. Call Room Moves
    8. Emotional Intelligence / Self Awareness
    9. Study Skills
    10. Non Clinical Careers
