Residency Committees and Teams
Health and Wellness Committee
The Health and Wellness Committee was established in 2016. The committee is composed of several members from each postgraduate (PGY) level and is responsible for planning and executing the monthly Wellness conferences and after-work activities as well (see Conferences).
The Resident Committee is composed of representatives from each PGY level and meets monthly. The Committee is responsible for raising and discussing residency related issues as well as suggesting improvements. The committee is co-chaired by a PGY2 and PGY3 representative elected each year by the committee. The co-chairs meet with the program leadership each month to discuss issues and solutions which are then communicated during the Business meeting. The co-chairs are also voting members of the Internal Medicine Program Evaluation Committee and members of the St. Elizabeth’s GME Resident Council. This Committee embodies our belief in open communication between the residents and the program leadership, who work together to generate ideas and create opportunities that has served to bring many positive changes to the program.
St. Elizabeth’s is a proud participant of the American College of Physician’s (ACP) Doctor’s Dilemma competition. The team consists of one representative from each PGY level, and competes in annual ACP Doctor’s Dilemma competition, which was formerly called the Medical Jeopardy. We are excited to be participating in the competition for this academic year.

What sets St. E's apart is its humanistic aspect. Being a mid-sized residency program, the collegial atmosphere, the wonderful camaraderie between the people that make up this program, and the sense of warmth and belonging that one feels here is nonpareil. Teamwork is instilled into the minds of the budding physicians without stifling their individuality. Originality is encouraged, dedication is lauded, and excellence is acclaimed. There is no dearth of role models to emulate. The veritable mix of clinical exposure, comprehensive academics, and ample opportunities for clinical research makes it a good fit for those going into primary care as well as those intending to subspecialize. And to top it all, it remains in the heart of Boston, a charming city that is close to my heart. St. E's is, and will always, remain a very special place that nurtured, supported and molded me into the person that I am today.
Tahnee Sidhu, MD, MPH, PGY-3
When I was looking for a residency program, I was very interested in a mid-sized program with a supportive, caring environment, and strong academic program. I did not want to be a number lost in the crowd. St. Elizabeth’s IM residency program has been that and more. The warm, collegial atmosphere has been the ideal setting to grow and learn as a clinician, with our academic programming, level of clinical exposure as a tertiary care center, and support for residents as they pursue their intended future careers ranging from primary care to those who wish to subspecialize. The diversity of our patients, residents, and faculty is refreshing and only adds to our education making us stronger clinicians. All of this, within the wonderful city of Boston, a place I now consider home, has been a dream combination.

I felt that St. E’s was the place for me from just interviewing there. After one year now I can say that I am so happy with the decision I made. The diversity the program offers provides a rich cultural environment that builds character and provides an amazing experience that one can never forget. I have gained an amazing family that has supported me and mentored me towards becoming a confident doctor who is able to provide the proper care patients need. The program offers a perfectly balanced experience between patient care and medical education. It greatly supports its residents in seeking their future careers whether it is a fellowship, a hospitalist position or an outpatient primary care practice. The program is in an amazing city that offers a countless number of activities to choose from.
Throughout the year, there are numerous events for the house staff and faculty, including a welcome dinner for incoming interns, Christmas party, an annual retreat off-campus in the spring, graduation dinner, and annual breakfast for graduates.
The annual retreat includes an educational workshop (various themes) and ends with an outing full of fun activities. Previous post-retreat events have been held at Seaport Elite Cruises, King’s Bowling, Fenway Park and a Boston Limo/Scavenger Hunt throughout the city
