DOVER — As excitement continues to build for the 21 new doctors who will arrive this July as part of the Internal Medicine Residency and Family Medicine Residency programs at Bayhealth, the Bayhealth Foundation will host community members and organizations “to share the positive impact the residency programs will have on our region’s growing population,” officials said.
Recently, Internal Medicine Program Director Joseph Deutsch, MD; Family Medicine Program Director Brintha Vasagar, MD, MPH, FAAFP; and General Surgery Program Director Bradford Mitchell, MD, FACS, ECNU, presented the benefits of the programs to the Dover Capital City Rotary Club.
To date, nearly $1 million has been raised in support of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs.
“There’s excitement in the air around these programs,” Bayhealth Foundation President Lindsay Rhodenbaugh said in a prepared statement. “People throughout our community understand how residents are going to increase access to care now and for years to come. Funds donated to GME will undoubtably have a positive impact on this community and we’re thrilled so many donors recognize this impact too.”
