What it's like to be a founding coordinator at a new residency program ft. Michelle Gonzalez
In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Michelle Gonzalez, Graduate Medical Education/Internal Medicine Program Coordinator for the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH), about what it’s like to build a residency program from the ground up. She discussed how the program was formed and how she collaborated with her Program Director Binay Eapen, program faculty, residency leadership and hospital leaders including Chief Medical Officer John Fisher to ensure that their program would truly benefit the surrounding community in Los Angeles. Michelle detailed how she and her team determined what facets to include or avoid in the development of their program, all in service of providing residents with an enriching, equitable, and effective training experience.
Michelle Gonzalez is the Graduate Medical Education/Internal Medicine Program Coordinator for the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital (MLKCH), where she started in May, 2021 as part of the founding team. Prior to MLKCH, she worked at Eisenhower Health (Medical Center) where she was the Internal Medicine Residency Coordinator, and before that was the Clerkship Coordinator, working closely with medical students and visiting residents.
