Residency Program Structure
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Our goal is to train residents with the skills required of an internist but more importantly achieve the ability to be expert self-learners as they progress into our ever changing health system. To this end, we have established and emphasize a clear foundation of Core Internal Medicine clinical experiences and curricular content in the form of lectures, case based discussions, simulation and web-based learning. We fully endorse and emphasize the Core Competencies as described by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which are Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Professionalism, Systems-Based Practice, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Interpersonal and Communication skills.
You'll be immersed in a diverse learning environment that includes a wide range of learning methods. A key ingredient is experiential learning in which every resident rotates through a variety of inpatient and outpatient venues.
Traditional experiential and didactic training methods are supplemented by web-based education, simulation training and one-on-one faculty interaction. The curriculum includes Morning Report, noon conferences, Grand Rounds, Resident Update and Feedback Sessions, Subspecialty Journal Clubs, EBM Lectures, Hospitalist Grand Rounds, Practice Management, and career preparation.
Our training program offers a unique blend of resident responsibility, patient diversity, and a most extraordinary spectrum of illnesses. The multi-cultural environment where internal medicine training takes place is uniquely varied. Residents will care for patients on the inpatient services at EMC and be the physician for providing continuity of ambulatory services in the clinic at the Uihlein Building. Rotations at USC/LA County Medical Center, community based clinics, and free clinic sites round out the experience.
We welcome the opportunity to show you our program and have you meet with our diverse faculty. We offer superb clinical training for graduates to achieve their desired professional goals. We strive to provide a friendly, open, and supportive environment that emphasizes academic excellence while balancing personal and professional achievements. Come and appreciate the excitement, enthusiasm, and pride that we share in our Internal Medicine Residency Program.
