Gundersen thanks residents, fellows as crucial frontline workers on 'Thank a Resident Day'

Monday, February 22, 2021

Gundersen Medical Foundation will join teaching hospitals across the country participating in Thank a Resident Day on Feb. 26.

Started in 2018 by the Gold Humanism Honor Society, Thank a Resident Day is an opportunity to recognize a group of individuals who work hard on the frontlines of patient care with compassion, dedication and a relentless pursuit of learning.

"We are fortunate to have a great culture of education at Gundersen," said Greg Thompson, MD, director, Gundersen Medical Education. "I am thankful for all that our residents and fellows contribute to that culture and the care of our patients and communities. Most notable are the many contributions they made to the frontline care of our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Gundersen's 100 residents and fellows play a significant role in patient care, patient safety, quality improvement and academic advancement. During the pandemic, they have been vital in the emotional support of patients during difficult visitor restrictions, experienced delays in their elective rotations to help on the frontlines, and naturally endured increased work hours and intensity to support the demanding hospital efforts. Their added presence, skills and contributions have been vital to patients and hospital operations during the ongoing pandemic.

Gundersen's 14 residency and fellowship programs demonstrate how the groups positively impact patient care every day.

"It is important for us to recognize all our residents and fellows contribute to our patients and their families, our organization and our communities," Dr. Thompson said. "We also have a responsibility to care for those caring for our patients, and gratitude is a great opportunity to express that care."
