What they're saying
My intern year has been a wonderful learning experience. The camaraderie among residents, including between junior and senior residents, is exceptional and I think this is what makes St Agnes particularly special.

Saint Agnes has a big hospital feel with small hospital camaraderie. The attendings are so supportive and always willing to help. St. Agnes was my home while at work. I really miss it already.

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.

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.
