Today, Feb. 24, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo joins with the Gold Humanism Honor Society and our hospital partners to celebrate national “Thank a Resident Day.”  

We are grateful to our Jacobs School medical residents for their professionalism, their commitment to safe, high-quality patient care and their tireless work in Western New York’s hospital systems. 

Residency is an integral period in medical training that provides these clinicians with the necessary experience, knowledge, skills and confidence to navigate a variety of health care settings and to serve as future physician leaders. 

Often the first face seen by patients/families, residents are a vital part of our health care team. They also serve as indispensable resources for medical students, especially during clinical clerkships.

Because of residents, the patients and communities we serve are healthier, with a better quality of life. Today, and every day, we appreciate them for their dedication, excellence and skills.
