New Rochelle, NY – January 4, 2013 – Again in 2012 Sound Shore Medical Center (SSMC) Residency Program was well represented at state and national scientific meetings. Most recently, three of its residents were selected to present at the American Medical Association-Resident and Fellows’ Research Symposium held in Honolulu, Hawaii.

An important part of that preparation is participation in scientific meetings. These events offer medical students, residents and faculty an opportunity to share their work and, thus, contribute to medical knowledge. Further, these vital gatherings showcase and promote research that enhances the quality of practice and education in internal medicine globally.

Commenting on the impressive number of presentations at the scientific meetings, the Director of Medicine, Stephen Jesmajian, MD said, “Our Internal Medicine Residency Program remains academically productive and continues its commitment to research and scholarly activity, while providing excellent patient care.” He concluded, “Congratulations to these three residents and the faculty whose work was judged worthy.”

President and CEO of Sound Shore Medical Center, John R. Spicer said, “Dr. Jesmajian and the faculty can take pride in the residents’ work that resulted in so many presentations and honors. Recognition in statewide and national venues validates the quality of our medical program, our residents and their outstanding efforts in patient care.”
