Resident & Graduate Testimonials

“This is an amazing program that provides every opportunity to grow personally and professionally. We have a very academic structure with many research opportunities. Patient population is very diverse which makes us well prepared after residency. Being in a smaller size program is another great advantage! We can do many procedures and have the opportunity to work just as fellows in our rotations. Our program has the perfect balance of autonomy and supervision. Program leadership and attendings are very supportive and approachable. They care about us as individuals. I feel very supported. We are truly a family here!” - Melis Ketenci

“This program has given me the space to grow as a physician and as a leader. I’ve seen diverse pathology and worked with patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds, which has prepared me for my future practice. The program has a positive and supportive atmosphere; I feel grateful to have matched at the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Stamford Hospital.”

“Our ICU rotation is superb, with a wide variety of cases. Moreover, there are plenty of research, quality improvement, and procedure opportunities. Our intensivists are quite involved in our learning and are extremely approachable and willing to teach. Since we don’t have critical care fellows, we work next to the intensivist and nursing staff as if we were fellows. The ICU experience at Stamford Hospital is priceless.” – Valeria Grijalva
“What I like about this program is that it is small, and because there are no fellows, we work closely together with the attendings of all different specialties and they are all great teachers and mentors. We have found not only amazing co-residents but formed friendships and a family.” – Mariana Chang

“The best part about our program here is that we truly are like a family. We are small so we are able to be a close-knit group. We are always making plans with each other on our off days off and there’s always support when you need it. I also feel that support from program leadership. Wellness is a big part of our program and we are given tools to help us with it plus fun program sponsored events like boat cruises and LOTS of free food.” - Katherine Kashinsky
