Testimonials from Students
At Deaconess Hospital, we are honored and humbled by the impact our services have on the lives of our medical students. Read on to learn some of their stories, in their own words.
"l am so glad that I have gotten the opportunity to rotate with the Deaconess Family Medicine Residency. The staff and faculty are very helpful and accessible which made the process of setting up a rotation simple and
straightforward. I have been able to experience many aspects of the program which has been wonderful. The residents have all been welcoming and supportive. This program also has strong didactic and clinical opportunities for rotating medical students."
"The Deaconess Health System is a great place to do auditions. Not only is the staff efficient and knowledgeable but very pleasant. The clinical staff is always willing to teach and has a genuine interest in the student's education. Furthermore the diversity of the patient population ensures that you are well prepared for residency and even as a future attending. I would recommend Deaconess to any medical student who wants a mid-size city experience with the friendliness of a small town."
"l completed multiple rotations at Deaconess during my 4th year. Deaconess was the seventh hospital I have done rotations at and I personally found it to be the most comprehensive and rewarding site to learn medicine. Every physician I worked with worked hard to give me the best education possible. I will always feel grateful and lucky to have had the opportunity to work and learn here with such dedicated and friendly staff."
"Working with Deaconess has been a dream compared to other programs. The ease with setting up rotations and flexibility of the program is invaluable. The strength of the family medicine rotation is the variation week to week- it showcases how family medicine actually is, and the variation of what it can be."
"The clinical experience in this family medicine environment cannot be beat. You are able to work in all settings during your four weeks, and can see the value in an unopposed family medicine residency. The rotation allows you to work directly with attendings, and they provide personal feedback so you can continue to grow through your training. Family medicine is much more than an outpatient experience and Deaconess will prove that to you."
