Steven B. Abramson, MD
Chair, Department of Medicine

The Department of Medicine’s Internal Medicine Residency Program is one of the oldest and most distinguished medical training programs in the nation. With new momentum for change, the program’s leaders have transformed this historic program into a leading-edge educational model, enabling the department to better train young physicians for the demands of modern medicine. 

Resident training unites all of our faculty across our three hospitals and our many faculty practices in the shared purpose of improving the experience and expertise of future generations of clinicians, scientists, and educators by improving graduate education. Our newly launched “4+2” inpatient/outpatient model for residency training affords residents the twin opportunity of caring for the widely diverse inpatient populations in the hospitals and of having a significant outpatient and specialty care experience as well.  In implementing our vision, we are thinking of the long term. 

Indeed, the most important mission of the department is the training of young clinicians and clinician investigators who will set standards of excellence for their communities and the nation.
