Last week, Dr. Heather Nixon, MD, has passed the leadership baton to Dr. Rena Beckerly, MD, former Associate Program Director, to take over the role of Residency Program Director. Dr. Nixon has served as our Residency Program Director for the last 3 years. She was able to maintain our ACGME accreditation by updating our curriculum and customizing our elective rotations to satisfy the ever-changing program requirements. She has graciously provided mentoring & guidance to Dr. Beckerly to ensure a smooth transition. Dr. Nixon will continue to serve as Associate Head for Education, as well as Division Chief for OB Anesthesiology.

Dr. Jacqueline Galvan, MD, has joined our Program leadership team as our newest Associate Program Director. She will serve along with Dr. Peggy Wheeler, MD, who will continue to serve as Associate Program Director.

Congratulations to all!
