In addition to residencies in hospitals, medical education should includes residencies in private primary care practice, clinics, public health units. Hospitals only see the acute care patient - but if this country is moving toward preventation and health, then medical education should put interns and residents where it all the field.

My company sells medical equipment and I get to talk to people across the USA. I am always happy to hear or read where a group has the commitment to provide solutions to real world problems. I hope Albemarle Health gets the recognition it deserves for a job well done.
