Internal Medicine Residency (AOA)

Internal medicine

Our residents develop the skills and competencies necessary to practice in a primary care setting, to practice as a hospitalist or to enter subspecialty training with confidence.

We provide: one-on-one mentoring by dedicated faculty; flexible tailoring of rotations to best suit our residents’ long term career goals; experience caring for a diverse socioeconomic population with a wide spectrum of disease processes; and instruction using interactive conferences, web-based learning and simulation.

Upon successful completion of the program, our residents take both the American College of Osteopathic Internal Medicine Board examination and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certifying examination. For those residents interested in fellowships, this allows them to pursue both osteopathic and/or allopathic fellowship training opportunities.

Our program enjoys a high pass rate on both the American College of Osteopathic Internist and the American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examination. Our residents have entered into competitive fellowships at programs such as Wake Forest University, Jefferson Medical College, Vanderbilt University, UMDNJ, St. Luke’s University Health Hospital, Mt. Clemens Regional Medical Center (Michigan), and Virginia Commonwealth University. A growing number of our current teaching faculty are graduates of our program who returned to practice, teach and conduct clinical research at St. Luke’s after completing their fellowships.

St. Luke’s also actively recruits graduates from our program to join our well-established and expanding hospitalist practice. For those interested in primary care, the recruitment department assists residents in locating practice opportunities.

We welcome you to apply to our program. We believe you will find our program provides a first-rate educational experience in a supportive training environment.

Our program offers a well-rounded curriculum and comprehensive rotation structure which prepares graduates for success in whatever path they choose, whether it is primary care, hospitalist medicine or subspecialty practice. Our residents can expect to graduate as highly-professional and competent physicians well-prepared to practice today’s medicine.”
