Our Hospitals

Each hospital has its own Associate Program Director (APD), a Head of Internal Medicine, and 2 to 4 Chief Residents. This means, whenever an issue arises, you as the resident have leadership, support and advocacy right there on site. This also ensures very high quality teaching and conferences at all three hospitals.

Ask any of our current residents what they think the strengths of our program are, and you will often get “the three hospital sites” as a response. That is because the three sites are quite different from each other, in terms of types of patients, acuity of presentation, and complexity of disease. But at the same time, they are very complimentary to one another, and you will leave our program feeling as though you have “seen it all.”
