I'm Gonna Let You Finish Mr. Clemens But...

Mark Twain is suppose to have said "When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it’s always 20 years behind the times*." With all due respect this is no longer true of the Queen City! From the redevelopment of the historic downtown district, Over-the-Rhine (or OTR for short), to the record breaking attendance of the new profession soccer team, FC Cincinnati, this city is undergoing a transformation - and is a great place to complete residency. 

One example of a local favorite spot is Woodburn Ave located in East Walnut Hills. Less than 5 minutes from the hospital many residents and faculty choose to make this community their home. It is an up-and-coming hipster-hood with small restaurants, art studios, bike stores and the always popular O-Pie-O (which only serves pie based foods- think tarts, pot pies, quiches, empanadas, and of course the seasonal pie-a-la-mode). 


You can often find a group of residents celebrating a birthday (as pictured here), playing trivia, supporting local businesses during the Friday night Walking-on-Woodbrun event, or taking their pets to one of the dog-friends eating spots!

*a note to the history buffs, according to "The Quote Investigator" Mark Twain may not have actually uttered these words... but it is such a common story we will let it slide. 


Welcome to July

But now it's July and time for work (whatever happened to summer vacation?). We are excited that our 7 brand new residents are off to a wonderful start! They've been in Cincinnati for a few weeks getting to know the city, the hospital and each other.

The last few weeks of June are a busy time in any residency and our program in no exception. From graduation for the 3rd year residents to welcoming the brand new interns, there is always something to do. 

July also means the start of 4th-year medical students looking at residency programs and making decisions about career paths. If you are looking for a full-spectrum family medicine residency with a focus on urban underserved and global health, take a look at us! Located in Cincinnati, Ohio at The Christ Hospital and affiliated with the University of Cincinnati, our training program gives you a unique opportunity to experience the diversity and breadth of family medicine.
