What Our Graduates Say...

"My time at URMC prepared me very well for a career in private practice. The attendings were knowledgeable educators; I reviewed a full spectrum of cases; and I had the opportunity to attend several conferences. This fellowship was a highlight of my training and I look back on it fondly."
