Feedback From Graduates
"The hallmark of my training at St Joseph Hospital was the extensive teaching offered to residents. This included a plethora of interesting clinical cases, which invited group discussion, data interpretation and clinical pearls. Saint Joseph Hospital also offered me the rare opportunity for reaching out to the local community through community clinics. When I went on to my fellowship, I was on par with the rest of my co-fellows. It remains to be said that the support I had from the program's directorship was enormous, and to this I am grateful."

"My classmates started going into fellowships and started their new jobs. I stayed in the program for an extra year as a chief resident. We all had the same opinion-that we had excellent training and a tremendous amount of support during our three years of residency. Now that I joined them in my own practice, I couldn't agree more. The strong training and diverse exposure I had at Saint Joseph Hospital allowed me to quickly gain the confidence of my patients and my colleagues and to start my new job smoothly and efficiently."

"As I went for fellowship interviews and training, I found I was very well prepared. After only a few months, the program let me know I was one of the most prepared residents they had ever had. It changed their minds about community hospital training programs. At Saint Joseph, I learned how to connect with my patients and keep the human touch a part of my practice. When it was time for me to start a practice, I had many options and decided to return to Saint Joseph because it is such an important place for me."

"Among many other benefits, training at Saint Joseph Hospital afforded me the opportunity to hone my clinical skills. The experience I gained from participating in morning reports and case discussions with my colleagues and attending physicians has been an invaluable asset. I found this useful in my fellowship training where I frequently had to present to large audiences at clinical conferences."
