A Message from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our residency program in Primary Internal Medicine offered by St. John's Episcopal Hospital.

Our training program has a rich history of producing high quality physicians who go on to excel in both general and sub-specialty medicine. We have as our mission the education of physicians who have the clinical skills and the humanistic qualities to practice as well rounded primary care general internists, hospitalists and sub-specialists.

In order to meet our goals, the training program at St. John's Episcopal Hospital has undergone significant, exciting change. While retaining the best, high-quality categorical internal medicine program, we have added several months of ambulatory care experience to our schedule. Residents will, therefore, acquire expertise in the nuances of both inpatient and outpatient care. Much of this training takes place in our Ambulatory Care Center and is provided by an experienced faculty of Board Certified physicians.

Our curriculum has also been expanded in the areas of ambulatory and general internal medicine, as well as evidence-based medicine, to provide our residents with the knowledge necessary to practice comprehensive Primary Care Internal Medicine. We service a wonderful diverse community, which provides a fertile training environment.

We welcome your interest and look forward to meeting with you. Please apply to our residency through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
