Are You Getting the Best Care at a Teaching Hospital?
Many hospitals around the country are deemed "teaching hospitals" due to the programs they have in place for resident physicians or resident medical officers.

But, if your hospital is one of those, do you ever think to yourself... "I want the real doctor"?

Are you getting the best health care at a teaching hospital?

Be confident that you are.

Residency is a stage of graduate medical training. A resident physician or resident medical officer is a person who has received the title of "physician."

Almost all doctors have spent time being a resident at a teaching hospital.

"I want a real doctor to care for my child" is commonly heard by hospital staff. But, be assured a doctor in training is well monitored and decisions are double checked by a "real" doctor.

Listen in as Elizabeth Murray shares information on resident physicians and how you can feel confident with the advice you receive.
