Internal Medicine Residency Offers Comprehensive Clinical Training and Research Opportunities
University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Veteran Administration Hospital, appreciate your interest in our leading-edge ACGME accredited Internal Medicine Residency Program. Together, we are strongly committed to maintaining a residency program of the highest academic standards with a scholarly approach to the practice of internal medicine. And while we promote an environment of academic rigor, our faculty fosters a supportive and collegial relationship with the medical interns and residents.
Our program is based on two themes: patient care and career development. We want our residents to become superb clinicians - a goal they achieve through clinical experience and teaching. We strongly believe in house staff autonomy and adult learning. We have an outstanding group of residents with excellent "esprit de corps", which promotes a positive learning environment.
Clinical Training and Career Development
Clinical training is the foundation, and career development is the second and equally important goal. We want our residents to succeed in their long-term goals, whether it is in academic medicine, competing for the most rigorous fellowships or preparing for life as a general internist. The chair, program directors and faculty see it as their mission to aid the residents in pursuing these long-term goals. Our program has an outstanding record of placing our residents in competitive fellowships.
We encourage you to come see all we have to offer by visiting us during the interview season.
Statement on Virtual Interviews
Interviews for our IM residency will be 100% virtual this year. We believe strongly that virtual interviews are an important social justice issue- leveling the playing field for applicants who may lack resources for increasingly expensive travel, and avoids adding to the student debt burden. We also believe that travel contributes to greenhouse gases and global warming, and cutting down on travel is an environmental issue. We fully support the guidelines put out this year by the AAMC.
