I am excited about my future. I will be starting as a hospitalist with Southwestern Vermont Health Care in July. Currently a 3rd year Internal Medicine Resident, and chief resident, at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut, I started considering positions last summer. I was considering a fellowship and other hospitalist positions when I received an email from VISTA’s Search and Consulting division about an opportunity in Bennington, Vermont. The opportunity appealed to me because of its location and the drastic change of pace from Fairfield County and I am looking forward to the challenges of a rural hospital, working in an area in need of physicians, and being in a nice community to raise a family.
As for my experience with VISTA, it was so easy, I was sure we were missing something! From the beginning, I was partnered with a dedicated recruiter, Kelley Hekowczyk, who walked me through every step. Kelley helped me prepare for interviews by briefing me on what to expect so there were no surprises. I appreciated Kelley’s knowledge of the job, position, and hospital and I felt that her relationship with the hospital was almost as if she were one of their employees. Her knowledge and the fact that she kept in constant contact with me made the interview and hiring process an easy and pleasant one.
Bennington, here I come!
