All three recent graduates from Hurley’s Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Training Program passed two board-certification exams this year, making it triple-doubles for the program.
“It is an outstanding achievement,” said Program Director Vijay Naraparaju MD. “I’m delighted to share the news.”
Newly board-certified in BOTH Pediatrics and Internal Medicine are:
- Hind Hadid MD
- Kirti Manjrekar MD
- Amanda Winston MD
The combined residency program is challenging - as is studying for two board exams during your senior year, while you’re tasked with senior resident responsibilities, next career steps, and life in general, said Naraparaju.
He attributes the success to the hard work ethic of the individuals; the strong education and experience provided by Hurley’s Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency programs; and the teaching, mentorship and board-study sessions organized by the Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Program.
“Everyone is to be commended,” said Naraparaju. “The residents, the faculty … all help to create high expectations and high quality in our program.”
This is the fifth consecutive year for 100% board-passage rates in two specialties for graduates of Hurley’s Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Program.
