“We are very proud of our residents and all they have achieved during the course of their residency training” said Kimberly Howe, 博士学位, FCCM, President and Designated Institutional Official WRHE. “The past two years have brought forth many challenges in health care, but our residents remained focused and worked together as a team to provide the highest quality of care to all our patients. We are fortunate to have our partnership with Trumbull Regional Medical Center, 沙龙区域 Medical Center, and Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital and I am confident that the hands-on experience the residents have received at these facilities will allow them to go on and make outstanding contributions in health care,豪说。.

On Thursday, June 30th WRHE welcomed 25 new physician residents into the program. The new residents began practicing under the supervision of board-certified physician faculty and advanced resident physicians. These new resident physicians were selected after a rigorous vetting and interview process of the more than 8,000份申请.S. medical students and physicians from around the world.

The WRHE residency programs are accredited to host up to 72 residents and provide supervised inpatient care in our affiliated Steward hospitals and outpatient care at our community-based clinics.
