From the Director
Dear Future Colleague:
The Greenwich Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program combines the best of university and community training. As an integral part of Yale New Haven Health, many members of the medical staff are members of Yale Medicine, and the residency has been a major affiliate of Yale School of Medicine since 1975. Six to eight medical students from Yale and New York Medical College and two to three PA students from Yale and Quinnipiac are always present on medicine teams and in our outpatient center. Yale faculty provides two to three lectures weekly in Greenwich, and residents take electives at Yale. Nationally recognized for service excellence the Hospital provides a collegial atmosphere for learning and quality of life. Enhanced by the charm of Greenwich forty-five minutes from NYC and New Haven, residents have the option to live in subsidized apartments (free for categorical residents), a five-minute walk from the hospital.
Residents are integrated in every aspect of the institutional wellness, quality and safety culture. They lead a Wellness Committee, Safety Council, Professionalism Council and Quality Improvement Committee. The curriculum includes an intensive Board Review program, simulation training and a Point of Care Ultrasound Program. The Ambulatory curriculum includes a wide variety of Internal Medicine and non-Medicine specialties while stressing primary care, prevention and continuity. Residents meet regularly with me and the Chief Resident providing feedback which often results in significant change.
Should you apply for training at Greenwich Hospital and are invited for an interview, you will see for yourself how an exceptional educational experience can co-exist with a high quality of life. I trained at a community hospital and have never regretted this decision; nor will you, if you come to Greenwich.
