The fundamental principle of the program it that resident responsibility is allocated gradually over the course of the five-year program, commensurate with the resident’s abilities and maturity. The greatest strength of our program is the outstanding and committed teaching staff of full-time faculty, all of whom place the excellence of the residency-training program as their highest priority in their academic endeavors.
