Each hospital in the Monash Health network has its own Resident’s Lounge (Ressies) for junior medical staff to relax and socialize. It’s always a great place to catch up with friends or meet new people.

You might stumble across the night resident snoozing on the couch. Or perhaps run into the surgical registrar having some downtime between cases. Or the hungry cover intern looking for a quick snack long after Zouki has closed.

Regular restocking ensures a constant supply of free snacks/food and lunch is generally catered for every Friday in Clayton and Dandy.

At Monash we work hard but also play hard and the RMO society runs lots of events all year round. Casual post-work drinks, which are usually paired with a generous tab and nibbles, are a monthly affair. Bowling and movie nights are also on our horizon at the moment and something we hope to throw into the mix.

Our two main highlights of the social calendar are RMO Cocktails and Valedictory. Cocktails are held close to the middle of the year and usually double up as post-exam celebrations for most specialties. Valedictory is held at the end of the work year and serves as a grand farewell to our colleagues who are leaving the Monash family to continue their training elsewhere.

The importance of exercise is something we often preach to our patients and a new initiative we are working on this year would be outdoor events such as intra and inter hospital sports. Stay tuned for more on this!
