Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine training program at Temple University Hospital. The Internal Medicine Residency Program represents the heart and soul of the Department of Medicine at Temple University Hospital and Temple University School of Medicine. We are committed to providing a dynamic, engaging education offering exposure to a wide array of clinical and research opportunities in Internal Medicine and its subspecialties for our trainees. The collegial atmosphere of our educational program, coupled with energetic, committed faculty, facilitates our house staffs' abilities to achieve their potential as practitioners of Internal Medicine.

The mission of the Temple University Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train our residents to become master clinicians with the skills necessary to become leaders in medical education, research, and clinical care of patients. Our program is dedicated to meeting the health care needs of the North Philadelphia community we serve. There are several aspects of our program that I believe set us apart from the rest and can be described in one word — OUTSTANDING:



 - Outstanding Professional Development - Temple University Internal Medicine Residency graduates secure superb growth beyond their residency as exemplified by a 96% first time fellowship placement rate with > 90% at their first fellowship program of choice.


 - Unique 24/7 Teaching Intensivist - Our full time Pulmonary/Critical Care
Medicine have developed a cutting edge educational and clinical model which ensures real time education and clinical supervision day and night! Who better to learn from than the experts? They published the new 2010 Critical Care Guide and provided all internal medicine residents with free copies.

"After attending medical school at Temple University I knew this would be the best place for me to do my Internal Medicine residency. I knew I wanted to go somewhere where I would be challenged to learn and to grow into a strong clinician. We have a very medically and socioeconomically complex patient population, which gives us the opportunity to take care of very sick patients in the advanced stages of their diseases. I feel very confident that with the autonomy I am given here and the experience with our patients and the wide range of pathology they present, I will be more than adequately prepared for the next stages in my career as a physician."

"I chose to come to Temple University Hospital all the way from Texas because of its amazing Internal Medicine training and the nationally recognized Pulmonary department. Temple allows residents a large amount of autonomy, even from day one--something that is very unique at large volume hospitals on the East Coast. Yet while giving the residents automony, Temple never abandons them: there is always an upper year resident available to support younger residents. The large variety of pathology at Temple make me feel well versed in all areas of internal medicine, which is difficult at smaller or less busy centers. Since coming here, I have been impressed by the camaraderie throughout the program and the sense of family I feel being a part of it. Residents are laid back and welcoming. I feel that in my first two years at Temple I have developed into a strong Internal Medicine resident and have gained the skills to become a competitive fellowship applicant. Temple has the strength of a large volume hospital while still maintaining the closeness of a much smaller program."

"Having been a student at Temple and participated in the couples' match with my wife, I looked at programs from Dartmouth, New Hampshire to Portland, Oregon. I saw a great deal of diversity in Internal Medicine residencies and found that what I had at Temple was amazing. One of Temple's best assets is the dedicated faculty educators, some of whom have been here for their entire lives and have taught generations of graduates. We also have great program leadership who is constantly responding to the feedback of the residents. Life feels balanced and every day is a new learning experience. The work is tough, but every student and resident is an integral part of care delivery to a complex patient population which contributes to an exceptionally rewarding experience. To top things off, we have a great group of people who you want to be with in and out of the workplace."
