Farmington Hills, MI (August 20, 2007)--- For the past three years*, all Botsford Hospital’s internal medicine, gastrointestinal, cardiology and obstetrics and gynecology graduates passed the American Osteopathic Board certifying exam on the first attempt.
Vance Powell, D.O., Botsford Hospital’s Director of Medical Education, says, “We’re thrilled with the results, which show the hard work of our trainees and the superb mentoring of our staff and our education program. This could not be accomplished without the team of doctors, nurses, trainees and administration working together to provide the best educational milieu and process possible which also assists in providing the best patient care possible.”
Graduates from Botsford's 19 training programs regularly exceed the national pass rate for licensing exams at around 95 percent. The trainees cannot be licensed until they pass the test.
