Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program at Saint Louis University. We are a program that strives to train internists of the highest caliber in a collegial and collaborative environment.
The philosophy of our program is based on two key tenets – that the patient is center to our daily work and that we do our tasks as a team.
This philosophy is based on the notion of service that is embedded in our Jesuit tradition but it is also based on the fact that adults learn by experience. By having a rich and diverse set of patient experiences you have the opportunity to provide excellent care. With this rich diversity, our residents have ample substrate to learn all facets of medicine. Last, because of our rich patient care environment, there are many opportunities to pursue patient-centered scholarship, such as a vignette, quality or safety project, or original research.
We embrace the notion that medicine is a team sport and that having an incredibly diverse set of residents that commit to working together in a fun environment provides the best training medium for internal medicine.
We are committed to providing the best possible experience for residents and we strive to provide the best opportunities for you to meet your career goals. Your hard work in residency will be matched by our effort to make your ambitions and dreams a reality.
This is an exciting time for our Program. The Department is stronger than ever with a wonderful mix of faculty who are dedicated to your education. We are also embarking on a new journey with a new hospital partner in SSM – St. Louis.
