UIC Internal Medicine Residency
Message from the Program Director
It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our Internal Medicine Residency Program, one of the finest in the country for those that place a high value on advocacy for underserved patient populations and a well-rounded education. The excitement of bringing physicians to their fullest potential continues to motivate our leadership team every day. We strongly feel that our diverse patient population, the family atmosphere of our program, and the autonomy that the residents have is a perfect environment to train the next generation of physicians.
Besides our Categorical and Preliminary Medicine programs, we offer combined Internal Medicine residencies in Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics.
The University of Illinois Chicago College of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency program is a three year, ACGME accredited program with teaching sites at both the University of Illinois Hospital (UIH) and the Jesse Brown Veterans Administration Medical Center (JBVA).
The University of Illinois Chicago Internal Medicine Residency has specialized tracks that give interested residents a more focused residency experience.
The Academic Internal Medicine (AIM) Residency Track provides additional academic training to internal medicine residents who have an interest in conducting clinical research as generalists. The AIM Track is an opportunity for residents to receive training in public health and clinical and translational research, and actively participate in scholarly activities under the mentorship of Department of Medicine faculty.
The Urban and Global Health (UGH) Track is geared towards residents who are interested in the care of underserved communities both in urban and global settings. This track provides the trainee with the focused experiences in underserved communities both locally and abroad, as well as the tools necessary to undergo a career in the field.
The University of Illinois Chicago is committed to an environment that fosters the development of future physician-scientists. Towards this end, we have a Clinical Investigator Pathway that allows residents to pursue training in internal medicine, with a strong emphasis on research, and a guaranteed position in one of our subspecialty research fellowships.
