Associate Program Director
The USC Internal Medicine Residency Program fosters an environment for our trainees to develop individualized autonomy under the guidance of excellent teaching faculty. For these reasons in addition to the breadth of pathology and learning opportunities available at this facility, I chose to train here myself. I stayed as faculty so that I can contribute to improving further the operational and educational aspects of the hospital and training program. I remain here because I enjoy teaching both the residents and medical students, and I continue to learn from them and our patients on an almost daily basis. At USC, I have personally been able to make a difference in the lives of my patients as well as my trainees whom I have witnessed develop into confident and independently capable physicians.
Dr. Sarte is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. His clinical focus is Preventive Medicine in addition to General Medicine and Pediatrics.

He believes that the patient-physician relationship is a team effort in which both parties strive to work together to maintain excellent health.
