Our Pediatric Residency Program at UC Davis consists of young physicians who are passionate about providing quality health care for children. Although residency training is, at times rewarding, it can also be challenging, intense and overwhelming. The risks of physical, emotional and cognitive exhaustion are great. Physician burnout and fatigue peak during one’s residency. One of the goals of our residency program is to focus on our resident wellness. We have created a Pediatric Wellness Fund to support various activities the residents have identified as helpful for them to maintain a healthy balance between their work and their personal wellbeing.
Your gift to the Pediatric Resident Wellness Fund will be used to care for our residents as they care for the children in our community. Your donation will be used to support wellness workshops, social gatherings and outings, provide occasional meals for the residents, and spontaneous treats that will brighten their long days.
TO MAKE A GIFT BY MAIL, please make a check payable to UC Davis Foundation and mail it to UC Davis Health Sciences Development & Alumni Relations, PO Box 160186, Sacramento, CA 95816. In the check memo line, please indicate the name of the fund your gift supports.
