We are proud to have trained the best and brightest physicians who have become leaders in medicine. Below are just a few examples of the outstanding careers that the diverse graduates of our program have gone on to achieve.
Dr. Macarthur Charles completed his residency training in 2004. He now conducts research related to understanding mechanisms underlying the response to antiretroviral therapy and the development of HIV drug resistance at GHESKIO.
Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is one of the founding members of the Minority Housestaff Committee. He completed his internal medicine residency at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in 1997.

As the association's chief executive, he leads the mission to be a leader, partner, catalyst, and voice for local health departments. Prior to joining NACCHO, Dr. Hasbrouck was Commissioner of Health for Illinois, where he worked with nearly 100 local health departments to protect the health and improve the lives of 13 million residents, and led the development of statewide blueprints for health workforce expansion and population health-healthcare integration. Previously, Hasbrouck was the only county official in New York to lead simultaneously both the public health and mental health departments. A former disease detective at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, he was actively engaged in two of the largest global health initiatives in history: polio eradication and the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. A board-certified physician, Hasbrouck holds a B.A. and M.P.H. from Berkeley and an M.D. from UCLA.

Bryant Cameron Webb, M.D., J.D., physician-lawyer and 2016 graduate of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, served as a 2016 White House Fellow in the Office of Cabinet Affairs as the primary liaison between the president and the cabinet. For Dr. Webb, who is interested in general internal medicine and policy making – with a particular passion for addressing social determinants of health – this fellowship will enable him to see firsthand how the federal government operates before returning to medicine. In addition to his work with the Office of Cabinet Affairs, Dr. Webb will spend the next year helping with Barack Obama's 'My Brother's Keeper Initiative', mentoring and supporting young boys and men of color in order to address persistent opportunity gaps in areas such as health, nutrition and education.
