Life during Residency
While residency can place seemingly never-ending demands on residents, residents need a healthy balance between work and leisure activity to stay well.
One of the biggest unknowns for medical students applying to residency is the uncertainty of what life will be like once July 1st arrives. At the University of Utah, we adhere strongly to the ACGME 80-hour work week, ensuring that residents can have time with family and friends.
Our residents and staff at the University of Utah are fortunate to have four-season outdoor activities in Salt Lake’s close canyons and mountains. When we are at work, we work hard, but when that’s over, we know we have a big backyard to explore and we each try to take every advantage of it.
