The relationship between the individual doctors and the various services is a collegial and synergistic one. Sit down rounds are conducted every morning with all the doctors to discuss each and every hospitalized case with our intern class of 8. This type of collaborative medicine is somewhat rare outside of a university setting and makes for a rich and rewarding environment. It optimizes patient care while ensuring continuous learning.

Teaching, mentoring and participating in the interns’ professional development would be expected from any candidate.
