Portsmouth Regional Hospital (PRH) recently graduated its first two classes of medical residents from the family medicine and internal medicine three-year residency programs.

“We launched our residency programs in 2020 with family medicine and internal medicine, and then added psychiatry in 2021, and we couldn’t be prouder of the men and women who have successfully completed these programs,” said Brian Sanders, MD, chief medical officer at Portsmouth Regional Hospital. “Residencies are incredibly competitive programs, and as the healthcare industry as a whole faces staffing shortages, we’ll continue to do our part to educate and train tomorrow’s physicians and physician leaders.”

The family and internal medicine residencies, are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The psychiatry residency’s four-year program was accredited by the ACGME in 2021. The first class in the psychiatry residency will graduate in 2025.

The newest class of family medicine, internal medicine, and psychiatry residents will begin their residencies at Portsmouth Regional Hospital on July 1, 2023.
