Internal Medicine Residency Program
The Internal Medicine training program at University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) Midtown Campus, established in 1954, has evolved and changed over the past 60 years. However, it has remained steadfast to its goals of providing high quality care and training opportunities in a supportive, collegial environment. The hospital began as Maryland General Hospital, a private community hospital, but in 1999 became part of the University of Maryland Medical System. In 2015, it was renamed the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus to reflect the growing clinical integration with the UMMC University Campus.
The Internal Medicine residency program at UMMC Midtown Campus provides a wide breadth of clinical exposure under the supervision of fulltime faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM). Residents learn to manage a diverse patient population and address health care disparities in both inpatient as well as outpatient settings. Residents are able to take advantage of elective experiences and educational resources at the UMMC University Campus, a tertiary referral center.
Residents regularly participate in scholarly activities, present conferences and journal clubs, and conduct quality improvement projects. Annual resident retreats provide additional opportunities for resident involvement in improving the residency program. The curriculum is designed so graduating residents are ready to practice without supervision and pursue diverse professional goals, from subspecialty training to inpatient medicine practice, or primary care. The program aspires to create a supportive environment in which a self-motivated, goal-driven resident will thrive and excel.
