Resident Life


Residency is so much easier when you work in a supportive learning environment fostered by your co-residents, faculty and staff. At St. Luke’s University Hospital, our program is deeply committed to team based, patient centered care in an atmosphere that allows for a healthy work/life balance.

“St. Luke's has offered me a residency program that allows for both personal and professional growth with faculty members that are dedicated to education and critical thinking. The transition from medical student to resident is quite difficult and intimidating, but everyone here has helped to make a seamless transition. I have grown so much in such a short time, and am so happy to be here.”

“I moved to Pennsylvania for residency not knowing anyone in the area. Over the last 2½ years, the St. Luke's Network has become my Lehigh Valley family. It has been a fulfilling journey to train, learn and grow under the supervision and inspiration of some of the most influential and dedicated physicians I have met. A supportive pillar to the residents, they have provided guidance, commitment and enthusiasm in ensuring we meet our educational goals during residency and career goals afterwards. I’m grateful for the encouragement I have received from faculty and co-residents when I expressed my dream to pursue a fellowship in Global Health.”
