Resident Retreat 2017 in Malibu, California

board review series headed by Jason Lee, MD, Assistant
Residency Program Director. Each week, a resident
presents a high yield topic to their peers while a faculty
member oversees. In keeping up with the changing
world of modern medicine, Sumit Singh, MD, has
introduced a comprehensive point of care ultrasound
curriculum, including workshops, lectures, and handson training for our residents.

At WARC, our residents were selected as both the
first and second place oral presentations, as well as the

Delara Brandal, CA-3 (Chief Resident), recently
published the article "Impact of Enhanced Recovery
After Surgery and Opioid-Free Anesthesia on Opioid
Prescriptions at Discharge From the Hospital: A
Historical-Prospective Study" as a first author in
Anesthesia and Analgesia. In addition, Pamela Chia,
CA-2, was co-first author in the journal Respiratory
Research on "Autonomic nervous system involvement
in pulmonary arterial hypertension". Finally, we have
successfully initiated our Anesthesiology Resident
Research Track (ARRT) and Anesthesiology Resident
Scholars Program (ARSP). Both programs are designed

Outside of the operating rooms, our Resident Wellness
Committee continues to promote activities towards
preventing physician burnout. In addition to celebrating
birthdays with monthly treats, this year, our committee
organized free month-long cycling classes - a big hit
amongst the residents and fellows. Additionally, Aviva
Regev, MD, delivered a wellness session to the residents
highlighting the importance of resilience in the
practice of medicine. Finally, we have had joint wellness
activities with faculty, including bike rides, spin classes,
outdoor photography, and yoga.
This fall, our residents enjoyed their annual resident
retreat at an ocean-view home in Malibu, California.
Residents were excused from all clinical duties to
attend. Sessions this year included a residency review,
financial planning session, career planning, and team
building. Residents enjoyed the remainder of the retreat
by the pool with food and drink.

Overall, we have had a very successful
year and are looking forward to an even
better year in 2018!
