A Note from Our Director
Eastern Niagara Hospital’s Family Practice Residency Program is entering its third year of training. At the present time there are twelve residents. The program’s vision is to give residents a model of care that reflects compassion, excellence in medical intervention, and patient safety in providing the best patient care, while teaching the residents a way to improve their own quality of life. This vision is being met by the faculty’s and residents’ cooperative commitment in building a program reflecting upon its accomplishments and ready to meet the challenges of a young program.
As a resident, we want you to be dedicated to your own growth in the areas of: medical education, patient care, professionalism, and self-understanding in order to best meet the needs of your patients.
The support of Eastern Niagara Hospital created this residency program and its dedication to the growth of the program gives impetus for new horizons to be opened up to the residents. This dedication is witnessed in the new clinic the hospital is establishing for the residency program in the community and the ongoing faculty recruitment facilitating the growth of this program.
