What They're Saying

"The dedication and support of our teaching faculty is what I believe to be our greatest strength. This is backed up by outstanding leadership, responsiveness to feedback and striving for continuous improvement. The energetic and motivating environment has helped me grow on both a professional and a personal level over my internship year. Training here has provided me with a strong clinical foundation, a wealth of medical knowledge and a strong emphasis on patient safety and physician-patient communication. Saint Agnes feels like a home away from home. I am blessed to be part of our Saint Agnes family."

Not only skills pertaining to patient management, but skills regarding patient safety and quality initiatives have earned me a special place among my peers.Saint Agnes' training experience has proven to be a pivotal role in my current professional niche."

“I miss Saint Agnes already! A blend of diverse patient population, excellent teaching faculty, leadership, Critical care/Cardiology training, one of the best EMRs and above all a great place to work. It is a closely knit program and was like my home and family away from home. I enjoyed every moment of my training here and felt well prepared to face any challenge in upcoming jobs.”

"Outpatient clinic was by far the best place in our hospital. It was a superb opportunity for me to build my own practice, filled with a diverse group of patients. The clinic enabled me to provide adequate time for preventive medicine and counseling, rather than concentrating only on the patient's current symptoms. I learned how to be an active listener and how to provide longitudinal care for a needy population. Besides, I learned more about my patients through their stories, tears and jokes, then through the medical records."

"If I had to choose a residency program again, I would definitely choose this one without a second thought. In addition to being trained as a competent physician, we are also trained to be compassionate and caring. I grew up from being a shy intern to a confident resident ready to go on out my own. My journey at Saint Agnes has been full of laughter and happiness. The working relationship among residents and the medical staff is friendly, and the environment here is so vibrant. I can foresee a bright future for upcoming residents at Saint Agnes, especially with all new changes in the campus and the commitment of our excellent leadership headed by our program director. I am proud to be a part of St Agnes."
