PHC Medical Education/Fellowship Ceremony
On Friday, June 24, the Graduate Medical Education Department at Peninsula Hospital Center held its annual graduation at the Lawrence Country Club in Lawrence, New York. Once again, PHC’s Graduate Medical Education’s motto, “Train and Retain,” was the theme of the graduation ceremony. “Our Medical Education Program is growing more and more each year and our Family Practice Residency Program is the largest ever in both stature and numbers,” commented Peter A. Guiney, D.O., director of Medical Education at Peninsula Hospital Center. “We are very proud of the residents we are graduating this year and very proud that so many of our graduates have gone on to such accomplished careers in medicine.” Keynote speakers, Narendra Hadpawat, M.D., former Chief of Medicine at PHC, and Dipak Patel, D.O., former Chief Resident and 2010 graduate from PHC’s GME program, both stressed that “it is always about the patient – first, foremost and always.”
Now in its fourth year, our trendsetting program has continued to prepare graduate physicians for state-of-the-art hospital medical practice. This valuable program has allowed the hospital to expand its faculty while retaining its best and brightest for service in the Hospital Center.
Peninsula Hospital Center is pleased that its own graduates, Anatole Hounnou, D.O., Tahera Ali, D.O. and Wayne Dodakian, D.O. will be filling hospitalist fellowship positions.
