Residents in training

Internal Medicine Residency Program

Medicine

The Department of Medicine is deeply committed to the education and training of skilled clinicians, researchers, and educators bound to become the health care leaders of tomorrow. Our Internal Medicine Residency Training Program supports a diverse group of nearly 100 residents. The excellence and high quality of our residents are the hallmarks of our residency program. Residents work closely with our dedicated faculty, each other, and our students to create a thriving learning environment.  

Residents rotate on ward services, consult services and in the Emergency Room at three teaching hospitals, including Medical University Hospital, Ashley River Tower, and the Ralph H. Johnson Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center.

Subspecialty and general medicine outpatient clinics at each of the hospitals give residents the opportunity to manage follow-up and continuing care of discharged patients under the guidance of full-time faculty. 

We also offer two combined programs:
