Residents receive broad clinical training as they rotate through our three main clinical sites. Aside from UMMC, our other clinical sites include Mercy Medical Center and the VA Baltimore Medical Center.

Mercy Medical Center is a community hospital academically affiliated with UMMS and located approximately one mile away in downtown Baltimore. Residents spend 5-6 months at Mercy over the course of their training, typically two months of medicine and three months of pediatrics, including a month in the full term nursery.

The Baltimore VA is the center of the Veterans Administration Health Care system in Maryland and is ranked in the top 5 VA’s nationally for research funding. It is connected by bridge to UMMS, and is staffed by many University faculty members. Residents spend 3-4 months over the course of their training at the VA on the General Medicine wards and in the Cardiac Intensive Care unit.
