Welcome to the website for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center (AIMMC). Many people ask me about the strengths of our program during the interview process. The greatest strength I can boast is the high caliber of our residents, both in medical knowledge and delivering high quality care to our diverse patient population. We are fortunate to have a strong core of dedicated and accomplished faculty who are committed to helping you achieve your academic goals.
AIMMC is a 408-bed community teaching hospital with a 100 year history of caring for the people of the northwest side of Chicago. The General Internal Medicine Residency Program was first accredited in 1956, and has maintained its full ACGME accreditation ever since. The Program currently has 56 residents. Our 48 categorical residents receive 3 years of training in preparation for careers in general internal medicine, hospital medicine or fellowships in the various subspecialties. Eight preliminary residents complete a one year internship before going on to specialty training in their chosen field.
The program has a comprehensive didactic curriculum including Case Report, Morbidity & Mortality Conference, Journal Club and Grand Rounds. Outside guests frequent our program to speak as experts in their field. Our rotation schedule is varied, embracing specialties in inpatient and outpatient settings. Additionally, residents build a panel of patients in their continuity clinics and develop long-term relationships with patients during their training.
I invite you to learn more about our residency program. Please take some time to explore our website. I hope that you consider Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for your Internal Medicine Residency Training.
