Mercy Graduate Medical Education - Family Medicine Residents

Letter from the Chiefs

Hello from the chief residents. Our job consists of acting as a liaison between the residents and the faculty. We have a good working relationship with our faculty and act as resident representatives at the weekly faculty meetings and enhance communication between the two groups.

In addition, we are in charge of scheduling residents’ rotations, office days, and most importantly, vacations. The chiefs also plan a yearly resident retreat and help with intern orientation and medical student recruitment.

On top of the excellent education and benefits the residents receive, there are also many extra “perks.” Residents receive free meals and coffee, free parking, occasional tickets to Blues hockey, Cardinal baseball and SLU basketball games. Family medicine residents have individual office and desk space as well as laptop computers for electronic medical records. There is also a free workout facility available at the hospital.

There are currently 18 residents in the Department of Family Medicine at Mercy Hospital. We are a diverse, laid back group who strive to provide excellent patient care while maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Several of us have spouses and children. All of us have outside interests and activities.

Overall, we are a relaxed, friendly group who enjoy life together both inside and outside the hospital.
