Our Program

"It’s all worth it — residency gives you the opportunity to have structured learning with set requirements on skills. This sets us up for success and will set us apart from others when applying for a job. I’ll have acquired skills it would take me years to get — if the opportunity would even be available. Think of it like a fast pass on the career roller coaster."

- Onieta Stewart, Hospital Medicine St. Claire Hospital, 2022-2023
