Program Description

The residency training program in Internal Medicine is thirty-six (36) months in duration. This program will train seven (7) internal medicine residents enrolled in the program during each training year for a total of twenty-one (21) residents.

Patient needs differ in various geographic areas, and the content of the internist’s practice varies accordingly.
