Saint Agnes Hospital
St. Agnes HealthCare is a full-service community teaching hospital with residency programs in a number of medical/surgical specialties. Established in 1906, the St. Agnes surgical residency program is the second oldest in the United States; the medical residency was founded shortly thereafter. Today, it is a comprehensive health system with physicians, hospital, outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center, Diagnostic Imaging Center, Cancer Center, ambulatory clinics and other provider relationships.
Key services at St. Agnes HealthCare include: The St. Agnes Cancer Center, The Chest Pain Emergency Center, Cardiovascular Services, Women’s Health Services, The Joint Connection, The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery and Telemedicine and the St. Agnes Emergency Department, which includes Pediatric, Adult and Urgent Care Emergency Centers. St. Agnes also supports off-site facilities such as the Seton Imaging Center.
Residencies are based primarily at St. Agnes Hospital, with rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Maryland. Exceptional support services, such as nursing staff and IV teams, allow the resident physician to concentrate on the care of patients and other academic pursuits. The general surgery resident is exposed to all subspecialties, resulting in a broad-based surgical experience.
AUC students are eligible to undertake core rotations in the areas of Internal Medicine and Surgery, and also many elective specialties at St. Agnes Hospital.
