BronxCare's Medical Education Program

An Ongoing Tradition of Excellence in Graduate Medical Education

For more than fifty years, BronxCare has provided high quality graduate medical education to thousands of physicians who now practice in a wide spectrum of specialities and subspecialties across the world. BronxCare sponsors more than 330 residents and fellows in 12 fully accredited Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) programs and three training programs in Dentistry, approved by the American Dental Association (ADA).

Training is offered in Addiction Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Family Medicine, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Psychosomatic Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, and Surgery, as well as General Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry, and Orthodontics. BronxCare’s commitment to graduate medical education is rooted in the fundamental belief that a well-educated, well-trained, and socially conscious physician will provide patient care that is medically sound, clinically sound, compassionate, and safe.

“Our residents treat more than 50,000 patients every year. They are skilled at addressing the special challenges presented by an ethnically diverse, low income, and medically underserved patient population.”

Director, Graduate Medical Education, and Attending, Pulmonary/Critical Care

Residents receive excellent clinical training in all of the training programs. The clinical learning environment for Graduate Medical Education (GME) is a constant and evolving process.

As a result, hospital faculty are continually working to integrate residents to patient safety and health care quality. Residents participate in patient safety initiatives and quality improvement projects, including peer-reviewed scientific publications and presentations at BronxCare’s Annual Hospital Day.

As evidenced by the high quality of our graduate medical education programs, its house staff, teaching faculty, and patient care, BronxCare continues to be successful in achieving the dual missions of providing excellent care and excellent medical education,” stated Dr. Venkatram.
