Chicagoland's ever-growing DuPage Medical Group launches resident recruitment program

Downers Grove, Ill.-based DuPage Medical Group signed the first individual to its recruitment initiative, DMG Catalyst Program, Sept. 25.

Through the Catalyst Program, seven individuals in their last year of residency will have the opportunity to commit early to practicing at DMG once they complete their education. Residents will also receive a stipend in their final year of residency.

Program participants will have access to continuing medical education opportunities and maintain access to a mentor throughout their final year of residency.

Charles R. Schwartz, MD, was the first individual to join the initiative. He is set to complete his residency at Chicago-based Rush University in 2018. Upon completion, he will join DMG's internal medicine practice in Lombard, Ill.

DMG also acquired six physicians Sept. 25 from various Illinois physician practices, including Orland Park, Ill.-based Family Practice Healthcare and Morris, Ill.-based Elite Gynecology, among others.
