A Message from the Program Director
Welcome to the Capital Health Internal Medicine residency website! Our program is a 3-year categorical program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) that enjoys a long history dating back to 1974. We began with 27 residents and are excited to announce that with our 2016 graduates achieving 100% Board pass rate, our program was granted an increase in complement by the ACGME. We will have 39 residents - 13 in each year.
Capital Health is a Joint Commission-certified two hospital system with Magnet Designation for Nursing Care. In addition Capital has Joint Commission certification as an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center; we are a state-designated Level 2 Trauma Center and feature several other innovative programs at our hospitals. See our Focus Areas on www.capitalhealth.org.
The Internal Medicine Residency program is structured to provide well-rounded training in a culturally diverse environment, preparing our trainees to pursue subspecialty training or careers in general internal medicine. The program provides a balance of in-patient and ambulatory experiences in General Internal Medicine and subspecialties of Internal Medicine. The program is organized to provide high quality training to talented and motivated residents.
Our dedicated Faculty cultivates an environment of mutual respect, honesty and integrity. We conduct patient-centered rounds, where resident are encourage to think about their patients, learn to ask meaningful questions, develop and refine critical thinking skills.
Residents are encouraged to engage in scholarly activities and are mentored by Faculty members in submission of their scholarly work. We are proud that every year our residents present at national, regional and local conferences with support from Capital Health.
Our residents are actively engaged in quality and safety initiatives at Capital Health and participate in institutional committees, preparing them to become the quality and safety physician leaders of the future.
Capital Health and our Program are dedicated to the well-being of our trainees and provide employee assistance as well as Faculty advisors/mentors to each resident. We have developed wellness, team-building and communication activities for our residents and their families over the past two years. Our Wellness team is actively engaged in this focus.
After you review our website, I hope you will contact us for any additional questions you may have.
I wish you the best in this exciting journey in becoming an astute internist and physician leader of tomorrow. I look forward to meeting with you upon you visit to Capital Health.
