Welcome to 3 new Med-Peds residents

It has been a long and competitive season. We reviewed more than 250 applications, interviewed 42 candidates and filled 3 positions. We witnessed as applicants went from mere names on a computer screen to candidates with experiences and goals that grasped our attention.

And now, we proudly and excitedly introduce to our Hurley Family and beyond the newest additions of our wonderful Combined Internal Medicine & Pediatrics residency program: THE INCOMING CLASS OF 2017!
