Program Overview

The Internal Medicine program is one of our institutions oldest and distinguished programs. It is a three-year program accredited by ACGME with Osteopathic Recognition. The Cleveland Clinic - Main Campus is our Sponsoring Institution.

Since 1959, we have developed a program built on the application of osteopathic principles and practice. The program uses an evidence-based approach to further educate our trainees. We foster an individualized, personal and patient centered approach to health care. Along with this approach we emphasize the biologic, social and emotional components of wellness as well as their effects on disease processes. The resident learns an interdisciplinary team approach to the delivery of health care. We provide adequate exposure to procedures as well as opportunity to interpret recommended studies. We have incorporated the ACGME Core Competencies into each aspect of our program, to ensure the graduation of a well-trained general osteopathic internist.

The residents staff a Primary Care Continuity Clinic, where they are the "attending" physician for a panel of patients throughout their three program years.

Rotations are scheduled on a monthly basis and take place in both the inpatient and out patient settings.

Residents must maintain BLS and ACLS certification throughout the duration of their residency.

Please see the audition tab to apply for a 2-week audition rotation.
