On Friday, June 18, Peninsula Hospital Center’s Medical Education Department held its annual graduation at the Lawrence Country Club in Lawrence, New York. “Train and Retain” has been the unofficial motto of the PHC Medical Education Program for several years and in keeping with that motto, the Hospital Center has welcomed a number of its recent graduates to fill its highly sought after Hospitalist Fellow positions and is pleased that other graduates have joined private practices here in the Rockaways. “It is always gratifying to watch young physicians grow in both stature and in knowledge and become excellent physicians,” said Dr. Peter Guiney, Director, Medical Education Program. “We are also very proud of the fact that our Family Practice Residency Program is growing and next year, we will welcome the largest number of residents we have ever had. It is an exciting time for us in Medical Education at the Hospital Center.”
