Celebrate “Thank a Resident Day”

February 25, 2021

We are excited to recognize February 26 as “Thank a Resident Day.” Over the past year, residents (inclusive of interns, residents and fellows) across the Wake Forest Baptist Health system have demonstrated the highest standards of care and compassion. They have shown how incredible they are – working stronger as teams to bravely care for patients during this unprecedented global pandemic. Their contributions allow us to recognize their outstanding efforts. 

Recently, the Gold Humanism Honor Society began honoring the importance of the resident staff and encouraging medical students at chapters throughout the nation to show their gratitude and appreciation. Residency is a key component of graduate medical training, offering an in-depth exposure to medical practice. It can often lead to long working hours matched with many responsibilities. Residents serve as the “house staff” of the hospital and are an integral part to the healthcare team, often serving as indispensable resources for medical students, especially during a clinical clerkship. 

We are so proud and grateful that the Wake Forest Baptist family includes residents. Please join us in thanking a resident today. Support the day on Twitter by tagging @wakeforestmed and #ThankaResidentDay.
