Doctors of internal medicine, also referred to as internists, practice medicine from a primary care perspective and can treat and manage many ailments. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems, handle severe chronic illnesses and serve as patient advocates for healthy lifestyles.
Recognizing that internal medicine is an integral component in the provision of healthcare services in the United States, the School of Health and Medical Sciences offers the Internal Medicine Residency Programs through Trinitas Regional Medical Center and St. Francis Medical Center. These programs provide physicians in training with the knowledge, technical experience and humanistic skills necessary for internists to provide high-quality patient care.
We offer educational opportunities at several regional hospitals for post-medical school physicians. Residency and Fellowship programs are offered in specialty areas, such as internal medicine, neurology, orthopaedic surgery and psychiatry. In response to society's rapidly changing healthcare needs, our emphasis on interprofessional education prepares healthcare leaders of tomorrow to focus on patient-centered care.
