Congratulations to all our new interns who recently completed their first month of residency!  We hope it was both fun and full of learning opportunities – our patients are so lucky to have you as their new physicians.

To our PGY2s, note that all ACP abstracts must be submitted no later than Wednesday, August 9, 2017.  If you haven’t done so already, you must send your abstract to your APD for review prior to submission online.

Fellowship interview season is getting underway!  For our 3rd year residents applying to fellowship, an APD will reach out to you for an opportunity to participate in mock interviews to best prepare you on interview day.

Finally, congratulations to Richard Seto and his wife on their new baby, Coraline!
