Resident Wellness Initiatives
Resident well-being is a top priority of Maritime Resident Doctors. Through our many initiatives and events we provide a variety of wellness options to our members. A look at some of the things we do are below, and check out the links to the side to see more information on things like our Employee & Family Assistance Program.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding Maritime Resident Doctors' well-being initiatives please contact Leanne Bryan, Manager of Health & Wellness, at 902-404-3594 or Leanne@mardocs.ca.
A Look At What We Do:
Enforcement of Collective Agreement
Maritime Resident Doctors works hard to enforce the resident collective agreement. This includes monitoring call schedules to ensure residents aren't working too many hours, supporting all residents going home post-call and advocating on behalf of residents.
Resident Group Benefits Plan
As a resident, you are eligible to be a part of Maritime Resident Doctors' resident group benefits plan through Manulife. This plan covers basic health concerns like dental, vision and prescriptions, but also other practitioners such as psychologists, massage therapists and others. Visit the benefits section of this website or contact our office if you have any questions about your options.
Residents are very busy and often aren't able to find the time to enjoy their life outside of work hours. We plan frequent social, recreation and family events to help residents get away, socialize and de-stress.
Some of our recreational events include golf, curling, skiing and paintball. For our family events we go apple-picking, have a movie matinee and milk and cookies with Santa. Between our Halloween, LMCCII and Orientation parties, there are a lot of opportunities to get out and enjoy the Halifax nightlife.
