Resident Experience

Sergiy Shatenko
PGY-3
The highlights are multiple top three include: 1) Longitudinal experiences in OB, peds and regional anesthesia 2) A great academic program that includes simulation, case management rounds and small group teaching 3)Flexible elective options
The staff at Queen’s are exceptional and are very dedicated to teaching. I always feel like my learning experience takes priority and I am constantly impressed by the quality of the teaching I receive. The small size of the program means that the staff get to know your strengths and weaknesses and can tailor their teaching to help you be a well-rounded clinician.
With only about 20 residents across all 5 years, we all get to know each other pretty well. We regularly have both formal and informal events that have great turnout from residents and staff. Examples include TGIF drinks, group bike rides, camping, spike ball, Holiday parties, as well are yearly resident retreats.
My extracurriculars are fairly fluid (and COVID restrictions dependent). I enjoy most sports, particularly biking, soccer and spike ball. I have always liked cooking and hosting, and with my recent introduction into the world of cocktail making I hope to do more of the latter.
All of the above highlights make Queen’s Anesthesia a pleasant place to work and learn, which goes a long way towards a positive culture of wellness. In addition, we have a very receptive program that constantly tries to improve the residency experience. We also have good working hours and have time to do things outside of medicine.
Every year brings more skills and confidence along with new challenges. This year, I look forward to the challenge of balancing being a learner as well as a mentor to the junior residents as we start being the “senior buddy” on call with the new PGY1’s.
