RESIDENCY LIFE AS WE KNOW IT
Who says it's all work and no play? Some people just don't outgrow that desire to play with dirt.

2013-2014 RESIDENCY RETREAT
It's a whole new ballgame! So goes the new Astros slogan and speaks well for a new residency year. Being the sponsor hospital for several major league sports teams should have it's perks. So it wasn't too hard to come up with this year's retreat setting.
A tour of Minute Maid Park, scavenger hunt activities, and a special guest speaker and former Astro, Jimmy "The Toy Cannon" Wynn filled the day.
2012-2013 RESIDENCY RETREAT
"It's not rocket science, oh wait, it is!" Taking a different spin from cooking school last year, NASA (Johnson Space Center) became the landscape for this year's retreat.
With the correlation of safety in the airline/space shuttle industry to medication/patient safety in the hospital, we evaluted vital concepts such as teamwork, communication, situational awareness, excellence, and commitment needed in both industries. And the end of the day was a blast.... building rocket ships and watching them blast off!
2011-2012 RESIDENCY RETREAT
WELL DONE! ... at the kickoff of the 2011-2012 residency year
For our 2nd annual residency retreat, our creative juices were overflowing, literally. We went Iron Chef style at the Well Done Cooking School and issued a challenge between the red and the black teams. Who is better at infusing flavor, creativity, teamwork, and presentation while taking into account the judges' dietary restrictions? All with the secret ingredient..... BACON.
And the winner?
RED is the new black. Congrats Kevin, Misbah, Hanna, Christy, Nathan, Mohammed, and Bennett! You won by more than remembering that vegetarians don't eat meat.
