The Residency Support Council (RSC) is a committee composed of second, third and fouth-year Cornell anesthesiology residents who are devoted to supporting their co-residents and each other at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
The Residency Support Council's mission is
- to be recognized as a committee of peers who support the concerns of all anesthesiology residents
- to act as a dedicated council of ethical listeners who advocate intelligent and proactive direction for the betterment of our community
- to further foster an appreciation and meaningful exchange from our valued residents by embracing them beyond their profession, and to always promote their personal well-being
The Residency Support Council offers the following services to residents:
RSC members are available for help, support, and guidance throughout the year and handle all concerns confidentially.
Big Sib, Little Sib Mentorship Program
Each member of the new intern class is partnered with a resident from the RSC to be their peer mentor.
The RSC arranges OR orientations before each new resident’s anesthesia rotation.
Guides to the intern, CA-1, CA-2, and CA-3 years have been developed by current and past residents, regularly undergo updating/refinement, and serve to orient residents to new clinical experiences at every training level.
The RSC organizes regular get-togethers during the year in the form of monthly departmental happy-hours, seasonal softball games, fall apple-picking, new intern orientation week, and more!
The RSC organizes periodic wellness sessions for the residents to help deal with common physician stressors such as burnout and financial planning.
The RSC organizes and sponsors speakers and panels that address topics including fellowship selection/planning/application, networking and job search, and financial literacy/wellness.
