Resident Experience — Year 1
Residents begin their experience in Bridgeport, one of the largest and most ethnically-diverse cities in Connecticut. During this first year in an urban area, residents will gain high-touch experience in inpatient medicine, obstetrics and orthopedics that prepares them for the practice of rural medicine.
The bulk of training in the PGY-1 year will take place at St Vincent's Medical Center. Founded in 1903, St Vincent’s is a 473-bed tertiary care hospital and a Level II trauma center. Here, residents will train in inpatient medicine, emergency medicine, intensive care, obstetrics and behavioral health.
Residents will complete additional training in orthopedics and pediatrics, including an inpatient pediatrics experience at Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
