Internal Medicine

Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency Program at the University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center.

We have a new state-of-the-art hospital in Largo, MD, a suburb of Washington, DC.  Our facility has 205 acute care beds and also operates as a level II trauma center, designated stroke center, cardiovascular center, and cardiac surgery program.  We are proud to serve the residents of Prince George’s County, Maryland, as well as many residents predominantly from the Northeast and Southeast quadrants of Washington, D.C.  Our program provides intensive exposure to the practice of internal medicine and prepares graduates for a wide variety of careers in medicine. During training, residents are encouraged to think critically about important clinical and research issues in medicine while gaining expertise in inpatient and ambulatory settings.

Our program offers two training tracks – a 3-year categorical track (12 positions), and a one-year preliminary track (6 positions). In addition to our 42 internal medicine residents, psychiatry residents from St. Elizabeth hospital and medical students from Ross University rotate through our inpatient and ambulatory sites.

Our program was built in the 1960s, and has boasted a diverse faculty and resident body representing more than 60 different medical schools from around the US and around the globe. Our residency program is committed to recruiting a diverse group of residents who reflect our community's ethnic and cultural identities.  We hope to retain our graduates to serve our community after completion of their training.

Program graduates are well prepared for careers in the practice of general internal medicine and also may choose a path in the medical subspecialties.  Related to that we see about 30% of our graduates pursue fellowship, and the remainder choose careers as generalists in inpatient or ambulatory medicine.
