Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

On June 19, 2020 our graduating residents, fellows and a few attendings enjoyed a small, socially distanced, live streamed celebration.  We offer our heartfelt thanks to our residents and fellows for their dedication, their professionalism, and their commitment to the health and wellbeing of others during this pandemic. When faced with unprecedented challenges during BMC’s COVID-19 response, they rose to the occasion.
