CarePoint Health Graduate Medical Education Wellness Program

CarePoint Health strongly supports resident, fellow and faculty wellness. Our Wellness Committee comprises faculty and residents of the Bayonne, Christ Hospital, and Hoboken Residency Programs. Its goal is to promote and ensure that residents and faculty have access to tools that promote overall wellness and identify and manage stressors that impede a healthy work-life balance. Some of the areas that are addressed include: burnout, mental health, interpersonal stressors, and self-care. Further, residents are provided with mentorship through an ongoing collaboration with their faculty advisors as well as with structured biannual resident/faculty meetings that address professional development and goals, strengths, and needed areas of growth. Other resources that are ongoing include:

  • Bimonthly Balint groups (Hoboken only)
  • Optional onsite short-term supportive counseling
  • Resident Wellness activities
  • Lectures/seminars on Wellness Topics
