"No time in a doctor’s career is as influential as their residency. The explosion in medical progress has made medical training more exciting and complex than ever. While medicine has become more complex, new information resources have allowed trainees to obtain up to date data and practice true evidence based medicine. Our program fosters an environment where Housestaff are challenged to think independently, yet still have tremendous faculty teaching and supervision."
