Resident Life

Rush Pediatrics

One of the best parts about our residency is how close our residents are. Activities are organized both by the department and by the residents. They include:

  • Welcome happy hour for the new interns 
  • Resident recreational sports leagues – rotating sports throughout the year! They are open to residents and their significant others - Go Team Gang Green!
  • I’s and O’s – a monthly happy hour 
  • Resident winter party
  • House Staff Ball – a night to get dressed up and enjoy drinks and dancing with other RUSH residents
  • Retreats – each class has their own all-day retreat with a social event afterwards. The second year class has an overnight retreat.

There are also plenty of things to do around the city of Chicago! Our residents live in a variety of neighborhoods, and each one has something different to offer. Some of our residents’ favorite things to do around the city include:

  • Chicago’s amazing food and restaurant scene, including Restaurant Week Chicago

  • Beaches along Lake Michigan, the lake front trail, Chicago riverwalk, Millennium Park with free concerts and Movie in the Park series - and lots more greenspace through out the city.

  • Chicago Symphony Orchestra aka CSO -- RUSH residents can sign up to be “doctor of the house” and get free tickets all year long

  • Catching a professional sport game/match of the: White Sox, Cubs, Sky, Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Chicago Red Stars and of course Chicago Fire FC – RUSH is the official team doctor for the White Sox and the Bulls, so residents can often obtain discounted or free tickets!

  •  Concerts, festivals, and endless neighborhood events
