MARQUETTE — Upper Peninsula Health System-Marquette’s Family Medicine Residency Program welcomed six new residents who began on June 30.
The accredited program trains resident physicians for three years in a community-based setting, incorporating inpatient and outpatient medicine experiences as well as rotations in rural areas within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
“Our new class of residents have arrived, and are enthusiastically going through their orientation,” said Program Director, Dr. Brian Waite. “We’re looking forward to a great three years with them.”
