New residents welcomed at Desert Regional Medical Center
The Desert Sun

The first class of medical residents at Desert Regional Medical Center got a warm welcome Wednesday as they start the final stage of their training.

This is the first year of the Palm Springs hospital’s own residency programs. The hospital has hosted residents for short periods of time while on rotations in the past, but having their own residents full-time for their three- to seven-year programs is a much bigger opportunity.

The big goal: get these new doctors to stay in the Coachella Valley once their training is over.
