CATEGORICAL INTERNAL MEDICINE RESIDENCY PROGRAM

The Baptist Health System (BHS) Internal Medicine Residency Program has prepared residents for the practice of Internal Medicine and its subspecialties since 1972. The program combines academic excellence with a community hospital environment with the best features of traditional university and community programs. Our two tertiary care teaching hospitals, Princeton and Trinity, are the sites where Baptist Health System residents deliver care for patients with challenging clinical problems. A diverse patient population allows the resident to see the spectrum of both common and uncommon disease processes and to learn important diagnostic skills, develop clinical judgment, and practice evidence-based medicine. A didactic curriculum, with two hours of educational sessions daily, includes case-based lectures on topics important to the general internist as well as those preparing for subspecialty training.

BHS residents excel academically and are required to prepare case reports yearly. They consistently demonstrate excellent performance on the American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examination, and those who seek subspecialty fellowships have been successful in obtaining positions, in their chosen subspecialty, at a variety of prestigious institutions. For the medical student seeking a stimulating, challenging, and collegial Internal Medicine residency program, Baptist Health System has much to offer.
