Cook County Emergency Medicine Residency Program Accepts Top 17 of 1,300 Applicants This Year
Cook County Health Board Meeting
March 31, 2023 Virtual Meeting
Emergency Medicine at Cook County Health remains one of the most competitive physician residency programs nationwide drawing from the brightest graduating medical students. Minority and underrepresented groups account for 16% of the internal medicine residency slots beginning with the 2023 class.
Strengthening the multicultural diversity of primary care physicians (internal medicine, Family Practice) training at Stroger, Provident Hospitals and affiliated clinics is a priority of CCH’s DEI plan (diversity, equity & inclusion) Dr. Claudia Fegan, Chief Medical Officer, expounded.
Items to Watch for in the Future:
Redetermination for CountyCare managed Medicaid plan members is likely to eventuate in decreased plan membership in the June 2023 Managed Care data, noted Aaron Galeener, Chief Administrative Officer for CountyCare.
