Question special

Residency life can be lonely at times, particularly when you leave the hospital. You will have experiences that others may not always be able to relate to. Having a support system at home or in the community is key. Fortunately, I couples matched with my significant other who is also in medicine. Our program is excellent about arranging our schedules such that we have days off aligned, similar vacation schedules, etc. Programs also have emergency daycare and family-oriented events to welcome husbands, wives, life partners, and children. What programs exist at your institution to keep these support systems strong?
