Dear Residency Candidate:
As Chair of the Department of Medicine, I am thrilled to welcome you to our residency website.
Developing a residency training program has been a long-term goal for the Department of Medicine, of which I have been a member of for the past twenty-eight years. As a proponent of establishing a residency training program in Internal Medicine, I am elated to see years of planning and effort come to fruition by the creation of this program. Our medical staff is eager to engage in the education of our future colleagues, and we look forward to mentoring and supporting our housestaff.
At Brookhaven you will find a welcoming, caring environment where your education will be nurtured by our program leadership. I chose to make Brookhaven Memorial Hospital my institution of choice for the past three decades; I hope that you will feel the same sense of community and commitment to excellence that has made me feel so gratified to be a part of this institution.
Robert Roche, Department of Medicine Chairman
