Each year, interns from across the country join the Family Medicine Residency Program. In joining the program, these doctors also join a wide-ranging community of Utah clinicians, staff and faculty of the Family Medicine division, and fellow residents. In order to help welcome interns into the community, the program yearly hosts a celebratory picnic for interns to meet their colleagues, get to know each other better, and celebrate their entrance into the residency.
This year’s picnic took place last Monday, and was attended by more than fifty people, including the new residents and their partners, children, and pets. Picnic-goers gathered at Sugarhouse Park, ate together, and participated in a short program introducing the new interns.
