Exceed ACGME program requirements
“For our current residents and faculty, the ease of access to high-quality behavioral health has been an enormous benefit, especially in a rural community. From helping with test anxiety and preparing for the step exam and boards to dealing with the stress of residency, the support they have received from Tend has been invaluable. For our applicants, it has been a great selling point that we offer this service in our residency.”
