Over 90% of our graduates care for all ages in their eventual careers. Our graduates perform extremely well on certifying exams following graduation, with an over 95% board pass rate on the first attempt and an over 90% dual board certification rate. Roughly a quarter of our graduates have served as Chief Residents (both Med-Peds and categorical) upon finishing residency and over 95% of our graduates that pursue fellowship get their number one choice for additional training.
