United Health Services first back to back winner in Residency Rumble History

Veteran Residency Director Shari Nichols’s United Health Services Hospital placed first in the 12th annual Residency Rumble live academic game show held at this year’s Residency Education Summit East, for the 2nd time in a row, achieving the 1st back to back win in Residency Rumble history.

It is no surprise that women podiatrists have stepped up to leadership positions in many podiatric residency programs, but the consistent excellence in training that Dr. Nichols has achieved is truly notable. In fact, 17 podiatric residencies are now directed by women. It is also notable that all winning programs use the PRESENT Online Residency Education lecture series as part of their program curriculum.
