Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) will welcome six general surgery residents this summer. In 2014, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education approved Graduate Medical Education (GME) at AAMC. The GME program at AAMC provides training to doctors after they have completed medical school. This year’s cohort will be the first class of residents for AAMC.
Post-graduate year one (PGY-1) 2017- 2022 residents
Post-graduate year two (PGY-2) 2017-2021 residents
“Anne Arundel Medical Center is committed to excellence and innovation,” says Barry Meisenberg, MD, designated institutional official of Graduate Medical Education at AAMC. “Graduate medical education at Anne Arundel Medical Center helps us fulfill our role in the larger world of health and medicine. It ensures a future of talented and well-trained doctors. It’s also an opportunity to improve population health, provide better individualized care and help lower health care costs.”
While AAMC has a long history of training medical students, visiting residents, fellows, nursing and medical tech students, this begins a new era for AAMC. The residents will begin residency in July. In addition to general surgery, AAMC will establish future GME programs to include Internal Medicine.
