The primary goal of the Saint Joseph Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train physicians to practice safe, evidence-based, high quality care for patients. All residents will become outstanding clinicians and opportunities for research are plentiful with Kaiser Permanente, National Jewish Health, or the University of Colorado School of Medicine, with whom we are affiliated.
There area total of 38 residents in our Internal Medicine Residency Program.
One of the goals of the Internal Medicine Residency program is to help residents successfully complete the certifying examination for the American Board of Internal Medicine. Residents in our program have an outstanding track record of passing the ABIM board exam. Less than 5% of programs nationally have similar rates of passing.
Residents graduating from our training program have pursued a number of sub-specialty careers. The Internal Medicine Residency Program effectively prepares physicians for any fellowship program. Faculty members aid residents in their candidacy, and more than 95% of residents applying for fellowship match, with most receiving their first or second choice.
Future Career Opportunities
Graduates from the Internal Medicine Program have their choice of hospital-based practice, outpatient practice, traditional practice, or rural practice. Residents frequently stay in the Denver area, but also relocate around the state of Colorado and across the United States. The Internal Medicine Faculty advises residents through our mentoring program to choose and succeed in a practice that fits them personally. Additionally, Saint Joseph Hospital has an active program to assist residents in establishing primary care practices.
