Congratulations to our 2014 graduating class!
Patient Centered Medical Home!
We are currently in our second year of recognition by the NCQA as a Level 3 Medical Home!
Therefore, our residents are trained to understand and incorporate all aspects of the Patient Centered Medical Home from the beginning of their residency. As part of our PCMH initiative, we have several ancillary services that aid in the management of our complex patients.
Our practice has a Community-Based Health Manager whose sole responsibility is oversight of the needs of our most fragile patients, aiding in everything from mental health services to arranging for transportation. In addition, we have on-site psychiatric services that integrate care of the whole patient, not care of just a “disease”.
Understanding patient care in the context of the PCMH gives our residents a competitive edge when they graduate!
Outstanding Patient Satisfaction!
Our residency has won the prestigious Virtua Physician Excellence Award for outstanding inpatient Patient Satisfaction Scores. For the 4th quarter of 2013, our program scored in the 99th percentile for all hospitals in the region. Our Chief Residents, Dr. Mohammad Abdeljawad and Dr. Prameela Dibba, accepted the award on behalf of the residency, and a celebration breakfast was given to the residency in gratitude from the hospital administration.
As part of our commitment to the community our residents have participated in several health fairs, community events and community service. Dr. Indira Maharaj-Mikiel, one of our PGY-3 residents, has developed, organized, and implemented a very successful health fair at one of our local churches. Other residents have volunteered for Homeless Outreach screenings and skin cancer screenings. Our commitment to the community is one thing that makes our residency unique!
