Hospitalist Destinations

"I chose Providence St Vincent to complete my residency training for a multitude of reasons and could not have made a better decision. The program has cultivated a remarkable culture of academic rigor, evidence and value based practice, and compassionate patient care. The graduated autonomy built into their model provided me the confidence to easily step into the complex world of hospital medicine.

During these bizarre and turbulent times, our world turns to physicians for leadership, reassurance, and care. They rely on us to interpret scientific findings in a rapidly changing and fluid environment. And they know that our mission is to care for their loved ones regardless of the challenges put before us. Through a stellar faculty and teaching environment at Providence St Vincent, I felt encouraged and challenged to step into this role."

"My decision to complete residency at PSVMC was based on the amazing Griffithmentorship, sponsorship and comradery I noticed on my interview day. From nurses to residents to attendings, it was clear that people were happy to be working at St Vincent. I also hoped that the unique combination of a small program in a large tertiary care center would allow for a robust and challenging educational experience, with the added benefit of close relationships with faculty. I was undecided in my career path and knew that working with specialists and faculty who knew me well and had a genuine commitment to my success would be of the upmost importance. As it turns out, my training at PSVMC offered all those things and more. I explored Nephrology, Pulm/CC and Cardiology as I considered fellowship versus a career as a hospitalist. My mentors in those fields were very supportive and helped me gain clinical experience to really understand what each field offered. I was supported in all my leadership and educational endeavors and excitedly accepted the role of Chief Resident. It was during my Chief Resident year that I realized just how important a career in medical education was to me, and that hospitalist medicine would allow me to strike a balance between clinical and educational work. Fast forward 3 years and I am now core hospitalist faculty at PSVMC. I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at in my career, or the amazing journey I took to get here." 2017 - 2018 Chief Resident, Stephanie Griffith, M.D. Hospitalist Faculty, Providence St. Vincent Internal Medicine Residency
