Saint Francis Hospital-Life as a Resident  

Saint Francis Hospital-Residents are our Team

And while stress is a part of every Residency program, our House Staff Association makes sure you get relief on every possible occasion. Birthday parties, soccer tournaments (against the attendings!), picnics, holiday parties, international dinners and even ping-pong matches in the hospital help to make resident life fun.
