At a popular wine bar not far from the UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest, the trainees in the Internal Medicine Residency Program fulfilled a UC San Diego tradition on May 23 when they honored their graduating interns with the annual Intern Awards.

Involving many sincere awards and a few affectionate roasts, the event gathered all the graduating interns as well as the residents who will proceed to their next year of training at UC San Diego on July 1.

Awards were peer selected and were presented by the current chief medical residents.

The awards recognize the graduating interns from all four training tracks: categorical, preliminary medicine, combined medicine-pediatrics and the Physician-Scientist Training Program.

“They will be coming to UCSD from all around the country. They have had unique and diverse experiences and will significantly enhance our current group of outstanding residents.”
