Camaraderie, Innovation, Academic Rigor
When asked what makes this program special, the resounding answer from our house staff is "the heart and camaraderie of the program." The workplace and learning environment is supportive, collegial and fun.
Residency should not be about simply surviving but, rather, thriving professionally and personally. Residents truly enjoy their years at BIDMC and graduate with not only outstanding clinical and academic expertise but also a network of professional colleagues and friends.
It's not only the amazing clinical training that sets BIDMC apart, but also my fellow co-residents. They are not just co-workers. They are real friends.
BIDMC aims to provide each resident with a well-rounded educational and clinical experience. We take pride in exposing residents to ample research opportunities, quality improvement and patient safety innovation, as well as exceptional mentorship from world-class generalists and subspecialists. The program directors, faculty advisors, and chief medical residents work to create an educational environment that is flexible - one that can cater to individual intellectual curiosity and enable each resident the opportunity to carve out a personal clinical, educational and research path.
