Next Steps for Family Medicine Residents at Doctors Medical CenterFeb 12, 2021
We are proud to share with you that Dr. Andrea Silva and Dr. Mihir Kshirsagar, two of our third year residents in the Valley Family Medicine Residency at Doctors Medical Center, will be heading to fellowship programs after graduation.
Dr. Silva has been accepted into the Grayken Fellowship in Addiction Medicine at Boston University. The fellowship prepares physicians in clinical, research, education, public health and advocacy related to addiction medicine, and helps them develop and enhance addiction prevention and treatment care for patients vulnerable to health inequities. Dr. Silva was also a recipient of the Award for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education in 2020 for her patient care, interpersonal relationships with patients, physicians and faculty, and her leadership and community involvement.
Dr. Kshirsagar has been accepted into the Swedish Advanced Hospital Medicine Fellowship in Seattle. The fellowship, which accepts three fellows a year, provides additional training opportunities in hospital and critical care medicine for family medicine graduates.
Both physicians will begin their one-year fellowships after graduating from residency in Modesto this summer.
Being a teaching hospital – in both orthopedics and family medicine – means Doctors Medical Center is attracting the best and the brightest to the Central Valley. These doctors are bringing their knowledge of the latest in healthcare to our communities and with it, excellent patient care. Teaching facilities typically have a much higher caliber of medical staff and are challenged to stay up-to-date in evidence-based practices.
