This legislation expands physician residency slots to better address the state’s doctor shortage. “BCOM is proud to be part of the team that helped promote and pass this bill,” says President John L. Hummer, and Dean Don N. Peska, DO. “This was a team effort and we are ready to do our part in creating more opportunities to retain more physicians here in our state. BCOM’s future graduates, and the patients they will care for, are the beneficiaries of this legislation.”
