The Internal Medicine Residency includes both a three-year categorical and a one-year preliminary program. There are nine residents in each year of the categorical track, and 11 residents in the preliminary track.
We are fortunate to attract outstanding residents from all over the country. The Saint Joseph Hospital Internal Medicine residents are enthusiastic teachers, have a positive attitude, work well as a team, and support each other both in and out of the hospital. Residents are actively involved in various residency program and medical staff committees and are able to facilitate change in the residency program and the hospital. The Internal Medicine Residency Council helps to facilitate change in the residency program. There is also a hospital-wide Resident Staff Physician Council which has representation on the Medical Executive Committee, meeting with staff physician leaders as well as the CEO, CMO, and CNO of the hospital.
