Huntington Memorial Hospital's Graduate Medical Education Program
Receives Highest Level Accreditation
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the organization that evaluates and accredits medical residency programs in the United States, has awarded Huntington Memorial Hospital's graduate medical education (GME) program the maximum achievement of a five year accreditation. Huntington is among only five other hospitals in California to receive this designation in both internal medicine and surgery as well as for the sponsoring institution.
For the past 50 years, Huntington Hospital has been home to its GME program � a unique feature for a not-for-profit community hospital. In that time, nearly 1,000 medical and surgical residents have taken advantage of performing their residency in this community-based environment, complemented by rotations through Los Angeles County USC Medical Center.
Congratulations to program directors Arvid Underman, MD, Anthony Koerner, MD (medicine), and Steven Katz, MD, (surgery).
