July 2016 was a milestone in the history of Blake Medical Center as we welcomed our inaugural class of 15 Internal Medicine Residents to not only our hospital, but to our beautiful community as well. The Graduate Medical Education Program at Blake will be an integral part of our overall services and evidence of our commitment to the education of future healthcare professionals. Our physician faculty members are eager to share their experience and medical expertise with our residents while guiding them in the essentials of providing high-quality care to our patients that is both compassionate and engaged.
In July 2017 we added a new ACGME accredited residency program. Our Transitional Year Residency is a one-year program designed to provide well-balanced graduate medical education in multiple clinical disciplines and give residents broad exposure to the basic areas of medicine to provide fundamental clinical skills training. This program is approved for 13 positions, and is sponsored by our Internal Medicine Residency Program.
