St. Elizabeth's is proud of its Internal Medicine Residency program including the close relationship we have with our more than 50 residents. We celebrate their diverse backgrounds and the contributions they make to our hospital's staff and patients. View here a list of our current residents.


Choosing St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center was the most important stepping stone in my career. The people I worked with and the people I met; their level of knowledge and their professional behavior were outstanding; it is the environment I need to fully explore my capabilities. After having worked in this hospital for three years as a researcher and one year as a resident, I know that here I can get the medical training that I had always been dreaming. Ioannis Koulouridis, PGY-2 Medicine

I graduated from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in May 2015 and joined the internal medicine residency program at St. Elizabeth's. I was looking for a residency program with a friendly atmosphere, a focus on primary care and a learning environment that would challenge me to be a better doctor. Since starting in June, I am impressed by the diverse academic lectures offered in the morning and noon conferences, the 4-2 schedule layout and the approachability of the attendings and fellows on the medical floors. Most of all I am thankful to be surrounded by such a knowledgeable and caring group of co-residents.  Francesca Marangell, D.O., Intern, St. Elizabeth's Medical Center

I ranked St. E’s first on my rank list for many reasons. Since I went to a medical school with a larger residency program, I had a longing for something a bit more personal. St. E’s was small-ish, yet well-regarded, and the program director genuinely knew his trainees. It definitely fit the bill. Hyun S. Kim, PGY3, incoming Chief Medical Resident

After attending medical school at St. George's University, I applied to and interviewed at multiple programs in the northeast.  I ultimately selected St. Elizabeth's because I was so impressed by the truly collegial atmosphere of the program.  I continue to be amazed by the work ethic, kindness, and excellence of my colleagues, mentors, and all who work here at St. E's.  Each day is a unique challenge and opportunity to learn from the wide variety of patients and pathology that I see.  Not only do I enjoy my time here, but also know that St. Elizabeth's Internal Medicine Residency is preparing me well for my future in medicine.  Meredith Halpin, PGY-3, Incoming Chief Medical Resident
