A Message from the Program Director
At Capital Health, the Internal Medicine Residency Program is a 3-year categorical program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our program enjoys a long history, dating back to 1974, and has grown over the years to our current 35 residents with four full-time faculty members and several part-time faculty members in addition to myself providing education. We are located in an urban community setting, and our residents have the opportunity to explore other settings through their elective rotations.
Capital Health is a Joint Commission-certified two-hospital system with Magnet Designation for nursing care. We are a Joint Commission-certified Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, state-designated Level 2 Trauma Center, and feature several other innovative programs at our institutions.
Our program is structured to provide well-rounded training in internal medicine in a culturally diverse environment, preparing our trainees to pursue subspecialty training or careers in general internal medicine. The dedicated faculty of this program cultivates an environment of mutual respect, honesty, and integrity. We conduct patient-centered rounds, where residents are encouraged to think about their patients, learn to ask meaningful questions, develop and refine critical thinking skills. More importantly, the program focuses on residents developing the ability to work in teams and at the same time recognize the importance of each individual’s responsibility as physicians to their patients and to the society.
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.
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.
The teaching program provides a balance of both in-patient and ambulatory experiences in the areas of General Internal Medicine and subspecialties of Internal Medicine. The program is organized to provide high quality training to talented and motivated residents.
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 your visit to Capital Health.
