Fellowship matches aplenty in Internal Medicine

We will miss our senior residents and our junior faculty when they wrap up their Hurley assignments in June, but it is nice to know that many of them already know their next step in their careers.

Hurley Internal Medicine just announced recent fellowship match results for current seniors and faculty, many who are recent graduates themselves. Not every person matched into their choice of fellowships this first try, and we share in their disappointment because we know how skilled and dedicated they are. But we know their hard work and excellent habits will serve them well in their futures.

And, of course, we share in the congratulations for those who did match into their selected fellowship.

“Many of our residents and faculty were matched in several competitive specialties and with the top programs across the country,” said Program Director Ghassan Bachuwa MD MSHA MS.

Here are the known fellowship matches to date:

  • Ahmed Abdalla. St. John Hospital, Detroit, Mich. Hematology-Oncology.
  • Emad Abu-Sitta. University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio. Infectious Diseases.
  • Samer Al-Hadidi. Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas. Hematology-Oncology.

  • Ranine Ghamrawi. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. Nephrology.

“Please congratulate our colleagues and wish them a successful fellowship training,” said Bachuwa. “This has been an exceptional year indeed. Thank you to all of the faculty and staff for your support to help them achieve their goals.”
