Make a Great Individual Commitment

  • As with life, you get out of it, what you put into it. It is no different with residency, regardless of the program you train at.
  • We expect excellence of ourselves and of our residents to help deliver exceptional care for our patients in their time of need.
  • We expect you to work hard to better yourself as a person and physician. In other words, show up early, stay late, and put in extra effort. In return we provide an exceptional education, and the dividends you will receive downstream will be immeasurable.
  • When you look back on your training at this program, you’ll remember it to be difficult yet rewarding, but well worth the effort!
