Holy Cross Hospital announced its new residency program with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine at a recent evening reception at the Holy Cross HealthPlex in Fort Lauderdale.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program, which was accredited by the American Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) back in September, opens its doors to residents July 1. The first class of residents was announced on Friday, March 20.
As a result of the significant increase of medical specialists, the residency program was created to train residents in primary care and prepare them for the changing healthcare environment - specifically, a monumental shift towards ambulatory medical care.
"With 1,300 applicants vying for 18 first year residency spots, the Internal Medicine Residency Program is a promising yet competitive prospect for many aspiring medical professionals in Broward County" said Holy Cross Hospital President and CEO Patrick A. Taylor, MD.
