Life As a Resident

I appreciate the desire of this program to bring together compassionate and intelligent medical residents who take pride in improving the lives of their patients. The diversity of our residents is reflective in how everyone brings something unique to the table. My colleagues are friendly and fun to work with. It takes the edge off of this demanding career; our commitment to blossom as leading medical doctors. The warmth of attendings and support by nursing staff makes acclimating to the rigors of residency a little smoother. I was surprised to learn that many of my teaching attendings have themselves, walked these hospital wards as trainees at one time and are now sharing their wisdom with the next generation. It is a testimonial to the collegial environment that the program at Saint Michael's fosters.
