This Fall our residency barbecues gave residents a chance to spend time together while enjoying the beautiful Chicago lakefront at Promontory Point in Hyde Park.
Residents relaxed and had the opportunity to enjoy the culinary stylings of chief resident Jon Lattell (grill master in-chief) while they put their fire building skills to work.
Families and pets were welcome too, but the pets had to wait in line for their hotdogs and hamburgers. No matter what rotation residents are on, the program makes sure they get the chance to attend the barbecues and all the other residency social events each year.
Although our usual IMR trip to the White Sox games had to be postponed because of Covid-19, we have not wasted any time finding other fun events to do as a program. Every year we hold residency retreats, class days off (coverage provided), barbecues, Quiz bowl, volunteering events, a suitcase party, graduation celebrations, Firm competitions, and many other events for our residency family.
