MountainView Hospital this week welcomed the 2024 class of Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium Medical Residents.

Today marked the beginning of their post-medical school journey, with 76 GME residents beginning with the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium at MountainView Hospital.

There are eight programs and two fellowship programs at MountainView. The new medical residency class will bring the total number of residents at MountainView to more than 200 across all of the Sunrise Health residency programs in Southern Nevada.

This is MountainView’s 9th cohort of GME residents; its inaugural class was in 2016 with 52 residents in just two programs.

MountainView Hospital launched its Graduate Medical Education program in 2015 with the accreditation of its Internal Medicine Residency Program from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Since that time, MountainView Hospital, Southern Hills Hospital and Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center received approval from the ACGME to join forces under the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium, and continued to receive accreditation for General Surgery, Family Medicine, OB-GYN, Transitional Year, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiology Diagnostics, Neurology and four fellowship programs, Addiction Medicine, Critical Care Anesthesiology, Endocrinology Diabetes and Metabolism, and Gastroenterology.

ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits graduate medical education (GME) programs. A residency program specializing in a specific area is required for a physician to practice medicine, and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
