Educational Goals

The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health Internal Medicine Residency Program is dedicated to preparing resident physicians for the practice of Internal Medicine by providing a curriculum in accordance with ACGME guidelines for General Internal Medicine. Our specific goals are to:

  • provide learning experiences based on measurable objectives for education of general internists during their training
  • integrate principles of basic sciences with clinical experiences in a progressive manner
  • promote a broad understanding of the role of internal medicine with respect to other disciplines
  • medical disciplines, such as surgery and psychiatry, throughout the program provide for progressive responsibility for patient care, ultimately enabling complete patient management
  • promote understanding of the economic, legal, social and ethical challenges of contemporary internal medicine
