SVHC Podiatry Residency Program Graduates Two
BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Health Care has graduated two residents in the Podiatry Residency Program.
At a small masked-and-distanced gathering of health system leadership, Cody Anderson and Kurt Malkames were awarded certificates of completion.
“It's tough to leave. The mountains are beautiful, and we made a lot of friends here," Anderson said. "I have enjoyed all of the people I have met and the tight-knit community."
"I had excellent training here, and I enjoyed it. I am appreciative of the staff for dedicating their time to my training," Malkames said.
Dr. Anderson will originate a hospital practice in a rural community in South Carolina, and Dr. Malkames will join a private practice in Silver Springs, Md.
"I am very proud of them. They did extremely well and are prepared to face all of the aspects of podiatric medicine and podiatric surgery," said William Sarchino, the program's director. "I wish them luck and encourage them to keep in touch as they progress in their careers. They are a part of the SVHC family."
Six residents are currently in the program. They are third-year residents Shazad Buksh and Breton Fox, second-year residents Kyle Lewis and Nathalie Santos, and first-year residents Daniel Hennessey and Daryl Silva.
