Internal medicine is an exciting broad based field that spans the intensity of the critical care unit to the hometown feeling of an office practice. As an Internal Medicine Resident you are able to shape your education to fit the future lifestyle you plan to lead. For example, office based or sub-specialized practice. Your practice is not limited to the "critically ill" but consists of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of all disease processes in the adolescent and adult population.
We also offer a Primary Care Residency Program with emphasis on outpatient management. Services in adolescent medicine, substance abuse, preventative medicine, and increased clinic time are optional, along with the basic hospital curriculum.
The Residency Clinic at Metro Health Hospital provides clinical experiences in a primary care center. Internal medicine residents average 100 patient visits per month. We teach more than 30 outpatient procedures at the Breton Health Center including sigmoidoscopy, nasolaryngoscopy, dermatological procedures, cryosurgery, simple fracture care, spirometry, ECG interpretation and x-ray interpretation. As a resident you’ll have plenty of opportunity to learn how to manage patients, even in the most complex cases. The residency program maintains its own inpatient service dedicated to teaching how to manage patients from admission to discharge.

- A wide range of pathology
