Who We Are:

The Resident Leadership Council (RLC) is a multidisciplinary group established in 2010 that is comprised of resident physicians from the core residency programs at UCONN Health. The goal of the RLC is to promote a culture of improvement throughout our consortium of hospitals. We strive to address resident-related issues within the domains of hospital safety/Quality Improvement (QI), communication, and education/scholarship. The council provides leadership representation for all of UCONN Health’s residents. The RLC is a working group of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Committee and will have bidirectional communication efforts with the GME offices.
