"In Their Own Words":
Crozer's IM Residents Comment on the Program
“I’m running circles around my academic training colleagues.”
"I started my fellowship at a university program feeling intimidated, having come from a community hospital. I quickly realized my education and knowledge base were more diverse compared to that of my peers, who completed residency at a large institution..."
"I completed a four-week rotation at a university program. In doing so, I realized that the education and knowledge I gained in the Crozer residency program exceeded that of residents from the university program. Crozer is preparing us for fellowships and job opportunities..."
"I don't think I could have gotten better training anywhere else. I want to thank all the attendings for their outstanding teaching efforts over the last three years at Crozer..."
"I am certain that I am a much better physician and a much better human being after my residency at Crozer. It is an excellent program and I recommend it highly... "
"I loved the people at Crozer! They are so compassionate, knowledgeable, and really made me feel a part of the team... "
"Crozer was a great training program and prepared me well for my practice. There is an excellent balance between university type program and community hospital, between didactics and application."
"I think Crozer's IM program gave me the skills necessary to succeed in the 'real world' as a private attending. Especially critical care skills, palliative care skills, communication skills and evidence based medicine practice. They have helped me a lot."
"The training I received at Crozer has been a complete and well rounded experience. After finishing at Crozer and working along side physicians from other programs during my career so far, I felt my training and the good work ethics and fund of knowledge gained from my mentors at Crozer is far beyond what several other programs have offered to their graduates."
