House Staff Council

The Bridgeport Hospital House Staff Council (HSC) is a self-governing elected committee that represents the interests and needs of our residents and fellows. We strive to contribute to house staff well-being, improve the learning environment and foster a well-balanced residency/fellowship experience. The HSC provides an open forum of communication, and represents a unified voice on institutional committees such as the Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC).

As a Bridgeport Hospital resident/ fellow you are entitled to:

  • Attend all town hall meetings led by the HSC
  • Run for HSC executive positions
  • Vote at HSC executive elections
  • Serve as a chairperson or a member of any subcommittee of the HSC

Since its inception in 2016, the HSC has organized a number of resident/fellow events such as team building orientations, wellness and mindfulness seminars, in-hospital barbecues, bowling nights, and holiday parties.
