VMC has long been an official teaching hospital of the Stanford University School of Medicine. And now, according to Stanford General Surgery Residents, it’s also their favorite.
Dr. Gregg Adams, Chief of Surgery at VMC announced today that Santa Clara Valley Medical Center has received the “Best Service” Award by the 2011 General Surgery Residents at Stanford. Interns, Second-Year Residents and Fourth-Year Residents all gave VMC top honors, after rotations that included stints at Kaiser, Stanford Medical Center, Lucille Packard and the VA.
The General Surgery Training Program at VMC is headed up by Dr. Adella Garland and Dr. Peter Cahill. Thanks to their work and others, VMC is the largest teaching hospital in the South Bay, having trained a quarter of all practicing physicians in Santa Clara County. It’s just another way that VMC benefits all residents of this valley, regardless of where they normally receive their healthcare.
