Our Mission

The Internal Medicine Residency Program is a community-academic learning environment whose mission is to educate and train exceptional physicians in the discipline in medicine.

Our philosophy and curriculum incorporates a team approach to patient care and encourages progressive levels of independent decision making in order to prepare residents for fellowship training and medical practice.

Our collaborative relationship with physician practices and hospital clinical services ensures an ideal learning environment for professional practice and medical education.

Training & Education

The Internal Medicine Residency Program provides comprehensive and balanced educational training to prepare residents for careers in ambulatory primary care, hospital medicine, traditional internal medicine or fellowship training and board certification.

Our program recognizes the importance of training caring individuals who can practice their specialty while displaying knowledge the humanistic qualities that come with being an internal medicine physician.

We teach and incorporate basic science while making sure each resident understands the pathophysiology of disease. Residents will work with our physician team leadership analyzing and assimilating clinical data and applying evidence-based literature to determine the proper course of treatment for patients.

One of the goals of our GME Program is to impart future physicians the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to provide exceptional care in Internal Medicine. Residents will graduate with a clear understanding of the natural history of disease, the ability to select diagnostic tests appropriately and knowledge of best practices in providing cost-effective, evidence-based treatment.

Curriculum Schedule & Rotations

Our Internal Medicine Program is dedicated to providing the support and resources needed to become an exceptional physician.

We focus not only on the clinical exposure to your specialty but on the unique opportunities for personal and professional development that’s built on a strong core of medical knowledge.

Our residents and faculty focus on 10 Curricular Initiatives:

  1. Comprehensive and Integrated Core Curriculum
  2. Learning in an Academic, Community-based medical center
  3. Structured research curriculum
  4. Evidence-based conferences
  5. Inpatient and outpatient morning report
  6. Program director’s bedside teaching rounds
  7. Skills modules
  8. Signs images
  9. EKG and radiology interpretation conferences
  10. Mini-curriculum block

The program has adopted a 4+1 teaching block model design. Residents will spend four weeks of each block rotating with an inpatient service, emergency services, intensive care unit, or elective. During the one week of the five-week block, residents will rotate in ambulatory clinic seeing patients in the outpatient setting in the morning or afternoon.

During the first two years of training, residents learn the fundamentals in diagnosing disease and the appropriate selection of diagnostic studies. Rotations through sub-specialties occur throughout your training with up to 20 weeks during your third year. All rotations occur at North Florida Regional Medical Center or surrounding subspecialty practices.

Evaluation on each rotation is based on the content of the curriculum. All rotations follow the curriculum as the framework for resident teaching. This method assures a uniform experience and objective evaluation for all residents.

Inpatient Rotations

Inpatient rotations will provide the opportunity for exposure to a broad spectrum of disease in an environment emphasizing integrated healthcare delivery.

Residents will benefit from a schedule and training program that provides immediate feedback from instructors and with a better understanding of the complexity of care in an inpatient setting.
