It was a sweltering summer day with a heat index of about 100 degrees on June 25th when Primary Care Residents encountered the ECU Ropes Course. Despite the heat, spirits were high and the residents seemed to enjoy their time together. The activities encountered on the ropes course are designed to allow participants to assume their natural roles building teamwork and comradeship as they work together. For our first year residents it was their first time problem solving with one another. The Generalist Physician Program has sponsored the Primary Care Ropes Course for the past three years.
