Illinois Neurological Institute and OSF Physician Recruitment sponsored Wellness Days
These days occur on the 5th Thursday of the month in place of didactics (approx. 4 times/year). Just like a normal conference days, attendings and APN’s cover the inpatient services so the residents can enjoy some well deserved time off. These afternoons focus around FUN, teambuilding, and relaxation! Past activities have included painting classes, swimming, cookouts, escape rooms, go-carting, and bowling just to name a few.
