Internal Medicine Residency Program
Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine training program at UM Prince George's Hospital Center.
We offer two training programs in the Department of Medicine:
- 3-year categorical program in Internal Medicine - 12 positions available
- 1-year preliminary program in Internal Medicine - 6 positions available
The goal of our residency program is to train physicians to become board certified and capable of handling all aspects of the practice of internal medicine with finesse and aplomb. To that end, we set expectations and a curriculum for training in general internal medicine and sub specialties to the ACGME guidelines.
A dedicated core faculty fosters an atmosphere of academic curiosity, encouraging residents to use evidence-based medicine in their daily practice of medicine, as well as, in their case vignettes presented at local ACP and national meetings. This, along with outstanding patient diversity and pathology, allows our residents to develop the skills to become excellent general internists or subspecialists.
Categorical residents will receive training in ambulatory, as well as, inpatient medicine with excellent continuity of care afforded by following their patients over the 3-year period from the ambulatory setting to the inpatient setting and vice versa. All categorical residents have their ambulatory experience at the outpatient setting located in the Gladys Spellman Building in Cheverly. It is their role to assume responsibility as the primary care provider for their patients under the supervision of dedicated core faculty.
A work/life balance is achieved via a night float system. This allows residents to finish accepting new admissions at 8:00 pm. Our program is also known for its atmosphere of collegiality among the residents, faculty, and staff.
