The Department of Medicine at UM Prince George's Hospital Center offers a three-year program in internal medicine. The Categorical Program provides core clinical training in internal medicine and meets the requirements for the American board of Internal Medicine. The department also provides training for interns completing a preliminary year before moving on to other specialties.

Over the past decade, our residents have been comprised of graduates of more than 60 different medical schools around the globe. The residents come from diverse ethnic and geographic backgrounds.

First year residency is designed to allow residents to begin to make clinical decisions with careful supervision by senior level residents and attending physicians. As they progress through the year, they achieve more experience and skills, which allows them to act more independently. Second and third year residents have many common rotations; however, some rotations are specifically designed for senior residents.

Senior residents report directly to their supervising attending. There is a third year resident available in house at all times to assist first and second year residents with their duties. At the third year level, residents are regularly the senior person on call and their attending physician relies on their clinical evaluation. The below rotations are outlined specifically for our residency program.
