Intern retreat, led by program director Dr. Aashish Didwania, is a time honored tradition at Northwestern and is an important time for class bonding. Each year, program interns have a day off from clinical activities. The day includes a review of the potential stressors of intern year and strategies for dealing with them from recent program graduates. After the morning of reflection and goal setting, interns have the afternoon for fun, including riding the ferris wheel and swings at Navy Pier, playing "Intern Bingo, and playing miniature golf.
Pictures from the 2012 intern retreat, held in the Prentice Conference Center and beautiful Navy Pier, are below.
