Resident house staff cup teams are given an hour to decorate their pumpkins which are then displayed at the hospital’s Halloween parade resident table.
Residents participate and help fundraise for local causes, including the Orlando Health Heart Walk, the Make a Wish Foundation Walk for Wishes, Arnie’s March, among other community events.
Third year retreats are a weekend long and are based around the group’s preferences for activities. Previous years have gone to theme parks, boating, Dave and Busters, and chocolate making.
Every December, Dr. Moorjani invites the residency program to her home and we have a holiday party. It is tradition that all third years are given the night off to attend the party. The night is filled with food, music and families are welcome!
The first year retreat is combined with UF Gainesville and UF Pensacola programs. For 2018, UF Orlando won the Golden Diaper award!
Each year, the residents have a weekend retreat to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate. There are also professional growth and career planning components.
During the holidays every year we have a White Elephant party with food and a fun gift exchange that brings many laughs!
The second year retreats are also a weekend long and are based around the group’s preferences for activities. Previous years have gone to theme parks, boating, Dave and Busters, and chocolate making.
