“Many applicants are attracted to our program because of the breadth of clinical experiences, the committed, dedicated faculty and the national reputation of St. Luke's. Frequently, our graduates return and join the teaching faculty. To me, this is the greatest endorsement of the training program and quality of patient care we provide”
