Having graduated from this residency and the great fortune to be a faculty member of this great program, I have experienced both sides.
The pathology our residents are exposed to is unmatched across the country. Multiple clinical sites from rural, suburban and a children's hospital to a Level I trauma center and the Gates Vascular Institute, where some of the most innovative, cutting edge medicine and stroke/vascular care is performed. These sites provide an unprecedented depth of training and exposes the residents to any disease process imaginable.
The fact that the teaching body consists of esteemed, experienced faculty with incredible breadth of knowledge mixed with recently graduated "new blood" that can still taste residency is an asset that provides several perspectives that are essential in delivering superior residency training.
My last residency shift was on a Saturday and my first attending shift was the following Monday. I can say that the transition was fluid and flawless and that the residency program here prepared me for anything and everything.
I am extremely proud of my training and know from my fellow co-residents that have had the choice of their jobs all over the country that the training they received is unmatched and prepared them above and beyond.
For me, this city has become my home away from home; great food, great art, great history. It is easy to get around and has a very low cost of living. Did you know that the crash cart was invented in this city at our local Level I trauma center by Anita Dorr, RN, the ED supervisor back in 1967?
