Leisure Activities

Resident Graduation

In late-June we bid farewell to our graduating CA3s. This event includes a luncheon at a local venue.

New Resident Welcome Party

Shortly after graduation we welcome our newest resident members. Lots of great food and drink and a chance to meet your new colleagues.

Anesthesia Night at Baseball Game

A tradition has developed in our department to arrange an evening of family fun at a Cedar Rapids Kernels baseball game. A section of the ballpark is reserved for those who want to attend. Ample amounts of hot dogs and other baseball treats are available.

University of Iowa Hawkeye Athletics

UI Hospitals & Clinics is located just across the street from Kinnick Stadium and is right Iowa vs Wisconsin football down the road from Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Kinnick Stadium is the home of the Hawkeye football team, and Carver-Hawkeye Arena houses the basketball teams (men and women), wrestling team, and volleyball team. If you like Big-10 level athletics, here it is.

Xenon Society...

Part of what makes the Iowa program truly unique is the morale and light-hearted spirit amongst residents. Several times a year, we make it a point to join together to celebrate the fact that we're not working. This can include the occasional drink/event to give family and friends the opportunity to enjoy each other's company.
