"Reflecting back on the last few years at Kettering, I have come to realize how fortunate to have matched here. The amount of support from attendings and co-residents have made life in residency bearable and encouraging. Learning is also emphasized here, so facing new and meaningful challenges is expected. As a smaller program, a good amount of attention is given for each and every resident, so there is no need to fear of ever being left behind. As my time in residency comes closer to an end, I will miss the camaraderie, the environment, and the food!"

"Kettering was a great place to train and was a positive influence on my growth as a physician. There is a good variety of patients, wonderful staff, and highly supportive administrative staff for the residency program who go the extra mile to be sure you have all you need. The teaching attendings are wonderful, and the hospital is full of friendly physicians in every specialty. I found KMC to be just as it was advertised and would choose it again."

"The Internal Medicine residency program at Kettering Health Network is full of very kind, caring, and supportive faculty and staff who are fantastic educators and mentors for great patient care. There is structured education daily consisting of relevant, up to date information that keeps residents well-informed and encourages daily learning. Teaching rounds provide invaluable real-world, bedside education that sticks in your memory and really helps you understand the logical explanation of disease and treatment strategies much better. At the same time, the kind and supportive environment offers a comfortable context to learn and become more independent as physicians. The value of the supporting ancillary staff cannot be emphasized enough. From the physicians to the nurses to the housekeeping and nutrition staff, everyone is very qualified and performs their duties at a high level, while also keeping a very professional and positive demeanor. The medical education staff is amazing and makes residents' lives as stress-free as possible. I honestly do enjoy coming in to work because of the quality of people I get to work with every day."

"Kettering Medical Center provides a warm, friendly atmosphere that supports academic and professional growth. The faculty are among the best teachers I've ever encountered at any teaching hospital, and they foster academic excellence and compassionate care. Kettering is one of the few programs that actively encourage its residents to participate in international electives, which serve to broaden personal, professional, and academic horizons. It's a pleasure to work and learn in an environment where the people around you truly enjoy their work."
