CLEVELAND, OHIO (October 8, 2014) — The Internal Medicine graduating class of 2014 has achieved perfection with 100 percent passing the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) exam.

“This achievement is evidence of our combination of a well-qualified physician faculty, exceptionally knowledgeable residents and a program structure that is conducive to high-quality learning,” said Keyvan Ravakhah, MD, director of the internal medicine residency program at St. Vincent Charity. “We are so proud of our residents and our faculty.”

St. Vincent Charity has a long history of medical education. In 1881, it conferred the first medical degree in Cleveland through Charity Hospital Medical College. It later merged with the Medical Department of Wooster University to form Western Reserve Medical Department, the precursor to Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

To this day, the Internal Medicine Residency program is affiliated with CWRU. As a teaching hospital, St. Vincent Charity has 52 internal medicine residents as well residents in addiction medicine, dentistry and podiatry.

“We are deeply thankful for our great faculty, attending physicians and coordinators who encourage, support and inspire us to follow their steps and do our best,” said Buthayna Dinary, MD, resident of the class of 2014 and currently a fellow in nephrology at University Hospitals.

ABIM was established in 1936 to answer a public call to establish uniform standards for physicians. Certification has meant that internists have demonstrated—to their peers and to the public—that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care. Today, ABIM certifies approximately one out of every four physicians in the United States.
