Every other year, Dr. Cabrera-Muffly, the program director, roasts a 65-lb pig in her yard and invites all faculty and residents for an end-of-summer gathering. Latin dancing skills are encouraged, but not required to attend.
The Department hosts an annual holiday party. Previous locations have included Dr. Jenkins’ home, the Art Museum (with a Star Wars costume exhibit), and a downtown mansion with food, mingling, and dancing.
Research Day and Graduation
Each June, we celebrate the graduation of the chief residents and fellows. This event is held at the Ritz, and includes awards, presentations of the graduates by a faculty mentor, and a roast of the faculty by the residents. This is an entertaining way to wrap up the academic year.
