About the Residency Program
Keck School residents are well-rounded individuals with a commitment to education and patient care. They have the opportunity to develop excellent diagnostic and management skills while learning hands on medicine from a patient base with a remarkable range of common and uncommon clinical problems. Our residents are clinical members of our care teams and are allowed progressive autonomy in their roles as physicians in training. At the completion of their training, internal medicine residents are outstanding physicians well suited and exceptionally qualified for any fellowship or career in Internal Medicine.
The principle goal of the internal medicine residency program is to train our residents to be talented and compassionate internists and thus ensure their access to a wide range of career options. The breadth of our curriculum allows us to provide our trainees with a unique range of experiences in both ambulatory and inpatient care.
Our more than 200 full-time Department of Medicine faculty boasts a variety of research programs in basic laboratory science, epidemiology, health outcomes, and translational and clinical research. Our residents have the opportunity to work side by side with our faculty on these research projects providing an avenue for incorporation of scientific investigation to their comprehensive medical education.
