Resident Experience

Muhanad Algadheeb
PGY-6
A small number of residents which means our concerns and aspirations individually and collectively are dealt with easily whether between us as residents or with our faculty and program director. And that number has made it easier for our residents to all be supportive of each other and helped me form lifelong friendships. An exposure to a wide range of cases and a large number of cases throughout my residency which helps inform my decisions about my future career. A trusting and supportive environment; our faculty train us to make decisions and manage our complicated patients early on in residency as well as do procedures with a great balance of independence, supervision and support, as well as trust us in our senior years to help provide that same training to our junior colleuges. The outcomes of the program throughout the years; Our program graduates have all ended up with great careers at world-class centers including our very own center with the faculty hiring their own graduates which speaks to the confidence the faculty have in their training program which makes me always feel privileged to be part of and soon graduating from this program.
The great amount of exposure to a wide range cases and learning from the expertise of different surgeons which will help me be a better cardiac surgeon in the future.
Our program director and faculty are very approachable and easy to deal with, whenever I was in need of guidance and support it was always available. Our residents are a close group of friends and are almost like a family and we have always supported each other along the way.
Even though our program is a very busy one I still enjoy life very much outside of the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, camping and astrophotography, and I’m always encouraged by our program director to do that in fact on a number of occasions she called me to suggest I take time off to spend time with my family and was always supportive whenever I wanted time off for any activity I wanted to do not related to the program.
