Annual Welcome Party
One evening during orientation, residents, their families and faculty enjoy getting to know each other at the welcome party. Generally held outdoors (weather permitting), this gathering encourages families to interact and socialize in addition to the residents. We hold our own White Coat Ceremony where families can participate.
“Having lived our lives in the Southeast, the Inland Northwest has been our greatest adventure yet. Spokane offers friendly hospitality by the locals you will meet and always offer ideas on things to do, and places to see. From the amazing Spokane symphony, to breathtaking views of Mt. Spokane, we enjoy Spokane and quickly have made it home.”
The Holiday party is great fun with fellowship, great food and wild White Elephant gift exchange. Residents , their spouses/SO’s and faculty are all invited.
Resident Ski Day
Three resident cohorts enjoy one “ski day” each. Each cohort is a mix of the 3 classes; they are excused from their clinical duties for one weekday so that can participate together in an activity of their choosing.

A faculty member hosts an annual day at the lake. A potluck spread of food satisfies the hunger that develops after water sports, volleyball, etc. A great chance for camaraderie in a beautiful natural setting.
One of the things I like most about this residency are the people I get to work with. I can work a full week with my co-residents and still want to hang out with them on my day off.
IMRS is a small, tight knit program which is exactly what I need during these challenging years. We know each other so well and have each other’s backs. It definitely helps me thrive.
