2017 Wellness Week

Our first annual ACOG Junior Fellow national physician wellness week pilot program held on March 27-31, 2017 was a huge success!  The enthusiasm and excitement of programs that participated was astounding, and resulted in over 1,000 posts on various social media outlets from over 50 different residency programs! 

We would like to congratulate the Ob/Gyn residency program at Providence – Providence Park Hospital / Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Program, for winning our 2017 ACOG wellness OB/GYN residency champion award this year.  This award was based on their stellar participation of wellness related activities throughout the week.


Additionally, we would like to recognize the following programs who have been bestowed the daily wellness awards for exemplary planning and executing an activity to address one of the daily wellness pillars.
