Nationally Recognized Resident Accomplishments

We are extremely proud of the accomplishments that our residents achieve during training. Some of our residents have even found the time to go beyond carrying out the work expected of our resident physicians and have made significant contributions to science by either being an author on a paper or by presenting their findings at major national meetings.
