Our Nuclear Medicine Residency Program once again received outstanding marks from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The ACGME is responsible for the accreditation of over 9,500 residency programs nationwide, making it one of the largest accrediting agencies in the U.S.
Our residency program was commended for growth in the skills, knowledge, and attitudes of our residents. As residents gain experience in their ability to care for patients, they assume roles that permit them to exercise those skills with greater independence. This is a core tenant of medical education and a platform for continued professional growth.
“Thanks to everyone in the department for their help in keeping the program in good standing,” said Lance Hall, M.D., who is currently serving as Program Director for the Nuclear Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Hall is an alumnus of the program, having completed his residency here in 2007.
