The attending faculty doctors at Saint Michael's Medical Center squeaked
by the hospital's residents 7-6 in the annual soccer match that has
become a cherished and much anticipated tradition.
The matchup at Riverbank Park in Newark's Ironbound neigbhorhood on
June 6 drew more than two dozen doctors.
The friendly match is intended to foster camaraderie and collegiality between
the faculty attendings and the medical trainees, said Dr. Hamid Shaaban,
Saint Michael's chief medical officer.
Saint Michael's is a teaching hospital affiliated with New York Medical
College. Every year, about 20 newly graduated doctors join the hospital
for a three-year residency. In addition, the hospital hosts another 18
fellows in a variety of medical specialities.
