Internal Medicine Residency
Welcome to the internal medicine residency program at the Christiana Care Health System. Our internal medicine program is sponsored by Jefferson Medical College (Delaware’s medical school.) We take pride in making your education and training our priority.
The world of medicine is rapidly changing and our mission is to help you become an outstanding internal medicine trained physician who is well prepared for the future. Imagine working in a residency program that gives you the skills to deliver high quality, high value care in an innovative and supportive environment. Our unique “4+2” ambulatory block curriculum places your longitudinal outpatient experience in block rotations, so that you will not have the disruption of going to clinic on inpatient rotations. During your training, you’ll learn to work effectively in multi-disciplinary teams, take advantage of our new state-of-the-art simulation center, and learn the skills of quality improvement in a nationally award winning 12 week course offered only at our institution. We offer other unique optional programs such as global health training, a research track, as well as a combined residency training/MBA program with the nearby University of Delaware.
Our diverse patient mix offers residents exceptional opportunities to diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of primary-care diseases, as well as tertiary-care medical conditions not routinely encountered in smaller hospital settings. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with and teach 3rd and 4th year medical students.
Our graduates have great success matching into competitive fellowship programs and many pursue careers in hospitalist medicine and primary care. It’s also worth noting that the Department of Medicine sponsors fellowship programs in cardiology, interventional cardiology, and nephrology.
While we are one of the largest hospital systems on the East Coast, we function like a family; where we get to know each other well and support each other. If you are interested in learning more about the program, I invite you to explore our web site further and feel free to contact us at 302-733-6338.
