Testimonials From Our Residents
Why did you choose to come to Newton-Wellesley Hospital for your transitional year? What are the strengths of the program?
"I had a great feeling about the hospital and program after my interview, and it has lived up to expectations in every way. The attendings and residents are awesome - strong clinicians and good people - and I couldn't have asked for a better group of co-interns."
"I love the community atmosphere at NWH. The environment is warm and friendly and education is offered in a setting that truly fosters learning."
"I was really excited to be part of the Newton-Wellesley Hospital transitional year program for my intern year. The balance of excellent academic medicine and friendly staff throughout the whole hospital makes it a great place to come to work and the feeling is infectious. The opportunity to rotate through so many departments of the hospital allows for a unique experience. In just one year, this provides us with an understanding of how a hospital works and how the role of a physician plays a part in successful treatment of a large variety of patients."
"The first thing that attracted me to NWH TY was the fact that I'd be in the Boston area, getting to experience the city and not having to uproot myself again when I start at MGH. The TY schedule is pretty sweet, balancing packed, busy months with lighter ones--just when your brain cannot take any more info, you're on elective or night medicine. Most importantly though, I've noticed that the attendings, staff, and even patients are incredibly warm, understanding people who love to teach!"
"I love NWH because Dr. Larson is an awesome program director. I feel like she actually listens to our feedback and I feel supported by her and she's a great advocate for us lowly interns. I also love NWH because it is a very pleasant environment to work in. Everyone is friendly, they smile and say hello even if they don't know you. There's also not the kind of pushback you get when you consult other departments that you see in larger busier academic centers. Finally, I feel like we get great teaching because we learn from the MGH residents and we practice really great evidence based medicine.
“At NWH, interns get exposure to a wide range of pathology and get to work with excellent attendings and residents. There is significant exposure to common disorders found in the community setting.”
“The attendings are VERY committed to teaching and looking after residents.”
“I love that NWH has high quality colleagues, administration, and faculty. They are approachable, willing to help out, work as a team, and are highly intelligent.”
