Thanks so much for your interest in our residency program!
Lankenau is a very special place to train – an academic medical center
that facilitates the highest quality medical education to take place
while providing a warm, personalized environment to learn.
Lankenau Medical Center takes care of an amazingly diverse group of
patients from the city of Philadelphia, surrounding suburbs, and from
around the region and world. This diversity combines with our
location at the nexus of three counties to provide outstanding exposure
to a fantastic spectrum of disease. From the most complex
cardiovascular conditions to tropical diseases, we see it all.
Lankenau is not a medical center that sends out all its interesting
cases – we diagnose, treat and manage our own patients – something we’re
very proud of.
Our attending staff is incredible. Physicians who work at Lankenau
are here because they love to take care of patients and love to
teach. I am incredibly proud of the fact that our attendings are
so accessible and that our trainees are able to have close relationships
with the attendings they work with. We are very focused on the
clinical, academic, career, and personal growth of our trainees –
something that our entire teaching staff takes very seriously. We
get to know you well and love to watch you develop as a physician.
Lankenau Medical Center is a terrific place to work. Our
facilities are amazing and are continuing to grow through a $600 million
building campaign including a brand new patient care building that is
opening in June, 2013. Our ancillary services are second to none
and our nursing staff is incredibly skilled – something that facilitates
great patient care. The presence of the Lankenau Institute for
Medical Research (LIMR) on our campus allows for our trainees to be
involved in world-class cardiovascular, cancer, infectious disease, GI,
and public health research.
As I said earlier, this is a very special place to train. Our
attendings, Associate Program Directors and I are deeply committed to
ensuing you have a top notch education while feeling supported and cared
about – academically, personally, and spiritually. Since 1946, our
Program has remained dedicated to ensuring that our trainees, both
categorical and preliminary, leave our program ready to provide the
highest-quality, safe, evidence-based care to their patients.
I strongly encourage you to apply to our program and visit us to see
Lankenau in person. We would be delighted to meet you!
