Graduation 2023

Class of 2023 (AKA the Covid Class) started residency at the peak of pandemic. Braving through the storm of covid and that chaos of residency, these physicians are known to be one of the most qualified classes to graduate from the residency. And lucky for us, more than half of them are staying in Modesto!

To the class that took on the brute end of a pandemic, learning how to navigate the medical field in the midst of COVID, staying sane when it felt like everything was changing, transitioning between program directors, saying goodbye to other beloved faculty members that have chosen retirement, but still having the heart to serve the underserved and being beacons of light to their underclassmen, always taking the opportunity to teach and set an example..
