Our Internal Medicine Residency Program aims at developing the unique talents of each of its residents. The educational activities of the Department of Medicine aspire to excellence in training of medical residents as the basis for a career as a primary physician or for further subspecialty training. This is a crucial time in the training of the resident in medicine. A broad training in general internal medicine, with an understanding of its scientific basis, forms the foundation of the practice of internal medicine. The resident physician not only learns the essential elements necessary to become an informed and capable internist, but also acquires an extensive background of information concerning the sub-specialties of medicine.
The faculty of the Department of Medicine endeavors to provide the best possible educational program, a program which emphasizes increasing responsibility for the resident during each successive year of training. Graduates of our Internal Medicine Residency can become practicing general internists and be confident they have the broadest possible background to advance their care of the patient. They can also compete successfully for post-residency employment in general internal medicine and for further training in any of the specialties in medicine. The Department of Medicine offers the opportunity for additional career training in fellowships of Cardiology, Endocrinology, Medical Oncology and Pulmonary Medicine.
Faculty of the Department of Medicine are active not only as clinicians, but also as researchers: research opportunities for the resident exist both during the general internal medicine residency and during fellowships. Our commitment as teachers of Medicine is to dedicate our efforts to the professional growth and development of our internal medicine residents and fellows.
