Albany Medical Center Welcomes New Class of Resident Physicians and Fellows

This week, Albany Medical College welcomes a new class of resident physicians and fellows, most of whom will begin their clinical training at Albany Medical Center Hospital today.

This year’s class of 143 medical residents represents 53 U.S. medical schools. Forty-one are international graduates. Twenty-three received their medical degrees from Albany Medical College. The class is comprised of 83 men and 60 women.

“Our residents and fellows play an integral role in Albany Medical Center’s three-pronged mission of quality patient care, biomedical research and medical education,” said Joel Bartfield, MD, associate dean for graduate medical education. “We welcome these physicians to our campus and look forward to helping them become competent and compassionate physicians.”
