Resident of the Month | September 2019
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
“Wellness Guru” Dr. Kuljit Kaur, PGY4 EM/IM
Dr. Kaur is the founder of our Jefferson Northeast Wellness Committee. She is one of the original members of the ALiEM Wellness Think Tank, has recorded Podcasts on wellness with AliEM, and has presented at multiple national conferences (AAEM, ACOI). She been a great supporter of our resident wellness and because of her a portion of our GME stipend can go to wellness activities such as gym memberships, pedometers and even massages! As one of our dual program residents she not only has improved the EM program wellness but she has helped to improve the IM resident wellness too. The EM residency has historically had 2 wellness events a year while IM never has. Dr. Kaur set up the first ever IM resident wellness retreat and ensured that all IM residents had coverage. She truly is our advocate. She is incredibly intelligent, a BAFERD in her own right, critical care guru in training and a wonderful mentor for our junior residents. She continues to excel both academically and clinically and we definitely would not be as well without her! Dr. Kaur truly is the whole package.
