Hear from our Chief Resident

We are one of the busiest trauma centers in the area. Our physicians are among the top in their field. They provide care for patients, collaborate in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and pass their knowledge to the next generation of health care professionals. The scope of knowledge and depth of expertise are unmatched by community hospitals.

We have a demanding rotational schedule that includes training in endocrinology, nephrology and two months of pediatrics inpatient. All of our residents write a peer-reviewed journal article during their residency training. We are initiating an HIV curriculum for our residents so that they will be competent to provide HIV care in practice.
