The Internal Medicine residency program at St. Mary Mercy Hospital is a fully accredited three-year intensive training program. The Accreditation Counsel on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited our "new" program in May, 2009. Currently the Internal Medicine Program has PGY 1, PGY 2 and PGY 3 residents.
Internal Medicine is the discipline encompassing the study and practice of health promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis, care, and treatment of men and women from adolescence to old age, during health and all stages of illness. Intrinsic to the discipline are scientific knowledge, the scientific method of problem solving, evidence-based decision making, a commitment to lifelong learning, and an attitude of caring that is derived from humanistic and professional values.
The St. Mary Mercy Hospital educational programs overall goals and objectives are to graduate an outstanding, competent, knowledgeable and qualified internal medicine primary care physician, hospitalist or subspecialty applicant. The overall curriculum is primary care orientated with flexibility to accommodate the personal needs of each individual resident. The St. Mary Mercy program fulfills all program requirements from the Accreditation Counsel on Graduate Medical Education, the Internal Medicine Resident Review Committee (RRC) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
