“My three years of internal medicine residency at Mercy have played a significant role in shaping my career and future. Residents are exposed to two completely different patient populations during rotations at both busy urban Philadelphia hospitals.
The ancillary staff are wonderful and always very helpful. The faculty are extremely encouraging to help you pursue fellowship goals or find hospitalist jobs after graduation. The program and GME dept. are receptive about resident suggestions and have implemented many ideas to better resident education and training.
For me personally, the ICU rotation has been one of the most valuable experiences. The diverse pathologies, high volume and turn over of patients, and intense and high pressure environment trains you to be able to handle any situation, in any ICU. In fact, the mentorship I received and the skills I honed while working in the ICU have shaped my interest and career path into critical care.
This experience has been very satisfying professionally and personally as I have made some very precious lifelong friendships.”
