The primary teaching sites for the Internal Medicine aspect of the training program are the UIC Medical Center and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center. While on Emergency Medicine rotations, residents will rotate through UIC, Lutheran General Hospital, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and Mercy Hospital and Medical Center. This unique ability to rotate through such a broad system of hospitals affords residents the opportunity to experience the practice of internal and emergency medicine in very different environments, from a tertiary care academic center to a community-based suburban hospital.  Undoubtedly, the challenge of doing a combined training program at an institution with such varied training sites may appear daunting.  But, the result of such broad training is a physician adaptable to any work environment and prepared for just about anything the medical field can throw at them.

Ambulatory Experience

All residents will have regular patients that they follow in the General Internal Medicine Continuity Clinic in the state-of-the-art Outpatient Care Center at the UIC Medical Center.

However, these patients will only be seen in clinic during those months while rotating on Internal Medicine. When one resident is rotating with Emergency Medicine, the other resident from the same class sees these clinic patients. All IM/EM Residents have clinic on Wednesday mornings. This clinic is precepted by Dr. Anne Polick, a member of the General Internal Medicine Faculty and honorary member of the IM/EM residency.
