Since the program’s inception in 1989, we have pursued our mission to train exemplary general internists, skilled in providing high quality, coordinated, comprehensive, continuous and compassionate primary health care to adults in any health care setting. Our program utilizes diverse care settings and a broad mix of patient populations to provide a thorough grounding in the entire range of general internal medicine. Our curriculum is equally divided between inpatient and outpatient experiences, with an emphasis on office practice, continuity of care, health promotion, and the health of communities. Our dedicated faculty provides a rigorous and warmly collegial training environment. Our graduates are successful in pursuing careers in general internal medicine or obtaining subspecialty fellowships.

The Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program has a class size of 16 residents in each year, and three PGY4 Chief Medical Residents.

The program’s small size promotes a warm, social atmosphere, almost like a family. Each academic year is divided into 13, four-week block rotations that highlight both inpatient and outpatient experiences in internal medicine.

"Our outstanding faculty team will help you become the doctor you want to be."
