Week in Review: Week of March 20, 2017

March 24, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

This week at Headlines, it was all about the three Rs: Recognition, Residencies and Relationships.

First, the university asked all staff members to share their voice in an upcoming climate survey with the goal of strengthening work relationships and creating a more inclusive environment.

Three units provided tips on how they recognize the hard work of their dedicated employees; med students celebrated Match Day, when they found out where they’ll train in a particular specialty as part of their residencies; and colleagues learned about the Victors for Michigan campaign and how they can help raise funds for programs they recognize as essential to patients and families.
