Internal Medicine Residency Graduates

Internal Medicine Graduate Tiara Sanborn
"We don't know how lucky we are until we're out in the real world!""Working with people from many training backgrounds it becomes apparent that we trained with some of the brightest, well-rounded physicians at Baystate. Thank you for providing us with the skills to become better than average physicians—and the tools to continue to become  better!"

—Tiara Sanborn, DO
2015 Graduate

Our residents have started off their post-graduate lives all across the U.S. from California to Georgia, New York to New Mexico, and most states in between. Many choose to stay right here in western Massachusetts.

Most of our graduates go on to sub-specialty training in fellowship programs at institutions such as, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, UCLA, and Vanderbilt. The majority secure their first-choice program.

A significant number go into primary care or hospital medicine.

We invite you to learn more about our graduates from the past five years.
