welcome interns 2018

Graduation 2018

The Class of 2018!

The Class of 2018!

June 23rd, 2018 was a big day for our 8 graduates and an exciting day for our 8 interns. We could not be happier or sadder at the same time. The 8 graduates are an exceptional group of physicians who will be part of changing health care, both around the US and across the world. Each of them has made a lasting impact on our residency and we are proud to call them colleagues. 

Introducing the interns!

Introducing the interns!

While we are sad to see the Class of 2018 go, the incoming group of 8 (our first time with 6 categorical FM residents) is stellar. They come from different backgrounds and geographies but they are untied in a desire to provider exceptional primary care to underserved populations in urban and international settings.

What started out as a promise 2 years ago became a reunion as the FM class of 2016 all returned to Cincinnati to help celebrate the graduation of the FMP 5th years. This class has had a strong bound since the start and shows the strength of the relationships formed in residency. We hope this is the start of a new tradition <<cough, cough, Class of 2017, cough, cough>>.

We're Walking on Sunshine!

Not only is it a beautiful week here in Cincinnati (well... ok... maybe it is a tad bit humid) but we get to continue to welcome our new interns to the TCHUC family. Let's continue to hear what they are excited about! 

Starting residency, I am most excited to be part of a program that focuses on working with the underserved and aims to change the world for the better. I am grateful to be surrounded by faculty and mentors who will push me to reach my full potential as both a physician and a leader in the community.   -Andrea Jaramillo, Class of 2021, FM

I cannot wait to train with such a dedicated, passionate group of physicians here, and I am so excited to learn more about the Cincinnati communities. I look forward to laying the groundwork for becoming a true community physician and community advocate, all the while exploring further research in mental health and primary care integration.   -Samantha Lammie, Class of 2023 FMP

So Excited... And we just can't hide it!!!

The last two weeks of June are always super busy for residents and residency programs but nothing really tops the experience of incoming interns. Over the last month or so they have graduated from medical school, moved to entirely new cities and started orientations. Because we just can't wait for our newest interns here is a sneak peak at some of what they are most excited about in starting residency.  

In regards to what I am most excited about as we start residency:&nbsp;1) To learn from our awesome faculty.&nbsp;2) To make new friends.&nbsp;3) To be able to tell people I am a doctor without feeling like I am lying (Hopefully this happens by third year?).&nbsp;4) To make Cincinnati into our new home and experience all the amazing things the city has to offer!&nbsp;   -Melissa Saab, Class of 2021 FM

I am beyond excited for the opportunity to work closely with other residents who have similar passions/interests and be a part of a program invested in caring for vulnerable and underserved communities. I am eager to begin full spectrum family medicine training and begin building relationships with patients. Additionally, I am excited for the amazing opportunity to have intentional academic training.    -Emily Levinson, Class of 2021, FM
