Resident Life

FM residentsResidency training requires commitment and hard work to become an excellent physician. A balance between residency training and recreation is necessary to achieve the goal of being a balanced physician and person. Our hospital is 30 minutes from Philadelphia, which offers countless cultural escapes. Here are a few local activities that help to achieve work-life balance:

Residents Retreat: Early in the fall, residents and faculty escape to the Delaware beaches or other area venue for a weekend of team building and fun. When at the beach, we usually stay overnight at the University of Delaware’s Virden Retreat Center in Lewes. But wherever we land residents are given free time at the end of the retreat to enjoy local offerings.

Saint Francis Foundation 5K: Each year, the hospital sponsors a 5K run/walk at the Wilmington Riverfront, which many residents and faculty attend. This is a great annual event that typically attracts more than 600 runners. The riverfront is a growing area with numerous restaurants, bars and a microbrewery.

Saint Francis Healthcare and University of Delaware Athletics: Saint Francis Healthcare is the official hospital for University of Delaware athletics. Even if you aren’t interested in sports, the University of Delaware, located 12 miles from the hospital, has a lot to offer.
