Thank a Resident Day is February 26, 2021
Thank A Resident Day was initiated by the Gold Humanism Honor Society in 2018 to honor residents for their hard work and dedication to providing excellent patient care. Residents serve as an integral part of the healthcare team, as in-house healthcare providers, & mentors for medical students during clinical clerkship.
Residency is an important aspect of medical training that provides in-depth, in-person exposure to the field of medicine. However, medical residency also can mean long hours, increased responsibilities, and stress. Thank A Resident Day gives institutions, medical students, and medical professionals an opportunity to acknowledge the resident staff on their team to acknowledge their hard work and dedication to providing compassionate patient care. Thank A Resident Day is also an opportunity to encourage residents to continue to do an excellent job.
Take the time this February 26, to show your appreciation to your resident staff. Download our Resident Appreciation Kit for easy access to social media images, and an 8.5 x 11 printable card. Simply print, fold, and write a genuine thank you note inside for each of your residents.
