 Boca Raton Regional Hospital Welcomes First Medical Residents


Hospital Serving as Primary Teaching Site for FAU's Residency Program in Internal Medicine


Boca Raton Regional Hospital recently welcomed 36 medical residents in internal medicine from Florida Atlantic University's Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. Boca Regional is serving as the primary teaching site for the College's internal medicine residency program and is part of a Graduate Medical Consortium supporting FAU residency programs.


Post-medical school residencies provide the training necessary for medical school graduates to become competent, board-certified physicians. A residency in internal medicine takes three years to complete.


This residency is the first university-sponsored program for FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and the first post-graduate training program at Boca Regional. It completes the hospital's transformation from a community facility into a tertiary academic medical center.


"We are most proud to be playing such a substantive role in this development for Florida Atlantic University, the city of Boca Raton and our region," said Charles Posternack, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Boca Regional and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Schmidt College of Medicine.
