We like to think of our residency as a family.

We love spending time together outside of work for holidays, birthdays, weddings, or just because. We are excited that you are considering joining our family here at Saint Joe's!

Here at Saint Joe's, we have many traditions that we feel make our residency special. For example, every year, each class gets their dedicated class weekend off, allowing for a class trip all together. There's also the long standing tradition of post-night shift brunch on Friday mornings during the nights rotation, which is something we all look forward to each week.

In the fall, we hold our annual resident retreat where all of the residents and attendings have the opportunity to spend time together outside of the clinical setting. In the past, we have done ropes courses, rock climbing, and trampoline parks. We typically also spend time in a cabin in the mountains afterward and end the night with our tradition of a themed costume party.

In the spring, we have our annual "Spring Fling." This residency tradition is a special event where we all get dressed up and gather with family, friends, alumni, and faculty to celebrate and honor the graduating class.

Living in Colorado for residency comes with many perks! Because Denver is so close to the Rocky Mountains, there are ample opportunities to ski, snowboard, or hike. You can also find places to bike, camp, fish, boat, and rock climb if you're interested. It is very common to see us residents outside in our free time taking in all the beautiful nature that Colorado has to offer. Come join us for 300 days of sunshine!

Whatever your interests are, you really can find something to do here in Denver. For example, we have all major sports teams, several museums, a vibrant performing arts culture, and a popular food scene, whether that is from the many great restaurants across the city or also the popular Farmer's Markets in the spring/summer.
