About Our Residents

Recent Graduates

The Board Passage rate has been excellent in the recent past. All residents taking the Physics portion of the Boards passed in the last three years and all three graduating residents in the last two years passed the Written and Oral portion of the Boards on the first try. Prior to this, a very good first-time passage existed and the percentage continues to impress.
