Location, Location, Location
Boston, Massachusetts, is a fascinating place to spend your residency. As an international "university town" Boston's population is a rich mix of native Bostonians and scholars hailing from around the country and around the world. The result is a vibrant and diverse community that is welcoming to many different lifestyles. Boston is rich in cultural and historic landmarks for weekend exploration, and is a short drive from the ski slopes and hiking trails of New Hampshire and Vermont, and the beaches of Cape Cod and Rhode Island.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is located within the Longwood Medical area, home to some of the east coast's premiere academic hospitals. We are blocks from Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Joslin Diabetes Center, Children's Hospital of Boston, and Brigham and Women's Hospital. We are affiliated with Harvard Medical School, which is located just down the street.
Boston’s many historic neighborhoods provide a wonderful backdrop for life during residency. You can enjoy a run along the Charles River, browse an eclectic bookstore, and savor first-class cuisine, all in an afternoon.
Residents at BIDMC live in many corners of the Boston area, from the stylish flats of the Back Bay, to the fireplaced Victorian homes of Brookline, to the backyards and gardens of Newton. Cambridge, located just across the river, is the home of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cambridge offers a sophisticated and liberal community that is a fun place to visit or live.
In Your Free Time
BIDMC residents have many interests outside of radiology. A sampling of our current residents' hobbies and activities include:
- Scuba diving
There are plenty of things that we tend to do in groups, including get-togethers at each other’s homes, barbecuing in the summertime, happy hour after work, and — of course — Red Sox games at Fenway Park.
Fun at Work
There are many social events that are organized by the department. These include:
Quarterly Birthday Parties
We come together to celebrate birthdays each quarter with special treats - gourmet cupcakes and ice cream sundaes are always a favorite among the residents!
Resident Wellness Initiative
Through this initiative, we host a series of events to help improve resident morale, collegiality, happiness, and decrease the risk for burnout. Examples of activities include kayaking on the Charles River, apple picking, and performing community service.
Our Annual Graduation Dinner is preceded by a lecture presented by an invited guest. The evening event takes us to locations around the city, such as the Harvard Club, for a cocktail hour, formal dinner, awards, and entertainment provided by the second year class.
