Program Mission and Aims

Program Aims

The core program recently began the Self-Study process for ACGME reaccreditation. The foundation for this process was to develop aims, or key expectations for the program. This may include aspects of the program that differentiate from other programs. The programs are also responsible for conducting a strategic assessment of the program, focusing on strengths, opportunities, areas for improvement, and threats. The aims for the internal medicine residency are listed below:

  • Produce competent, independent practicing internists, who have the ability to care for patients in both inpatient and outpatient setting comprehensively.
  • Prepare residents to be competitive applicants for fellowship, and have the opportunity to pursue other interests beyond internal medicine. This may include scholarship, education, advocacy, or leadership.
  • Train practitioners to have a basic understanding of quality improvement and patient safety.
  • Produce residents who will serve the local community through their practice of primary care, hospital medicine, and medical subspecialties. These practitioners should have expertise in treating the variety of patient populations in our community, with a particular understanding for the medically underserved.
  • Develop socially well-adjusted residents through a programmatic focus on physician well-being. The intent being that emotionally healthy physicians will be more resilient and able to deliver the best care to our community.
