Internal Medicine Residency
The goal of the residency program at UMMC Midtown Campus is to train future leaders of Internal Medicine. The program provides a wealth of experience and training opportunities, giving our graduates the foundation they need to fulfill their professional dreams and aspirations.
Our Internal Medicine Residency Program is affiliated with the University of Maryland School of Medicine and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus offers a friendly, welcoming, and supportive environment for academic medicine in a community hospital setting. The combination of a talented, dedicated faculty, a unique blend of ambulatory and inpatient training, and exposure to known generalists and sub-specialists allow residents and house staff the opportunity to become outstanding clinicians and future leaders in medicine.
Founded in 1881, Maryland General Hospital has a long and rich tradition of serving the medical needs of the local urban community in the midtown section of Baltimore. Established with a mission toward education, the hospital opened its own nursing school in 1893 and affiliated with the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1911. Residencies in internal medicine and ophthalmology were established in 1970’s; the ophthalmology residency has since merged with the University of Maryland Ophthalmology program. In the 1999, Maryland General Hospital became part of the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) in 1999, and in 2013, the hospital was renamed the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus. In 2015, it formally merged with the University of Maryland Medical Center; UMMC Midtown Campus is now one of two locations of the University of Maryland Medical Center, and serves as the flagship hospital of the University of Maryland Medical System.
At the UMMC Midtown Campus, a new ten-story, 212,000 square foot Outpatient Tower opened in the fall of 2021. The establishment of this new center reaffirmed the mission to serve our community by offering innovative, comprehensive, chronic disease management in one convenient location.
UMMC Midtown Campus is now a vibrant 179-bed urban community hospital, providing care in more than 30 medical specialties to more than 130,000 patients annually. Our team of more than 500 doctors and 1,300 employees cares for each patient with expertise and compassion.
