Internal Medicine Residency Program

I would like to welcome you to the home page for the Internal Medicine residency at Mercy Health - St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital. Thank you for your interest in our program.

We began training internal medicine residents in 1967 and have a rich history of producing excellent Internists. Our graduates are well prepared for careers in primary care and hospital medicine, as well as for further sub-specialization through fellowship training. Over the past ten years, residents from our program have obtained positions in cardiology, hematology/oncology, endocrinology, pulmonary-critical care, nephrology, infectious disease, and gastroenterology. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our residents, both during their training and later in their careers.

Through a careful selection process, we accept eight new residents each year. We are very much a multi-ethnic program and enjoy the diverse cultural atmosphere we have created. (Our Annual International Dinner is a yearly highlight!) International graduates are encouraged to apply. However, our hospital only sponsors J-1 visas. Successful applicants to our program have good interpersonal skills, an outstanding command of English, a strong fund of medical knowledge demonstrated by solid USMLE/COMLEX scores and an excellent performance in medical school. 

We have an extremely dedicated and committed teaching faculty, robust scholarly activity and a supportive administration. Our ABIM pass rate has traditionally been above the national average.

Please take a few moments to browse through the pages of our web site. I think you will like what you find.
