Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency Program
Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency training program at Loyola Medicine MacNeal Hospital! I encourage you to review our website and see for yourself what makes the MacNeal Internal Medicine program unique.
Our program has one vision: to train young physicians in the art and practice of Internal Medicine. We do this by developing clinical reasoning skills, expanding medical knowledge, and cultivating future leaders in healthcare quality improvement. MacNeal Hospital offers a rich and robust clinical learning environment with a diverse patient population. Our residents and faculty have the privilege in working a community hospital and giving back to Berwyn and the surrounding communities. This is done not only in our inpatient setting and clinic but also through various community service activities sponsored by MacNeal and Loyola Medicine.
Our program utilizes a 4+2 curriculum to better support resident education and wellness. This curriculum ensures that following each four week inpatient rotation, residents will always have a two week outpatient experience which is enriched by an academic half day each week called MedTalks. During each 6 week cycle a specific subspecialty theme, such as Cardiovascular and Endocrinology, will be covered in the MedTalks as well as noon conferences. Our inpatient medicine rotations remain strong because of our daily bedside rounding by dedicated teaching faculty and hospitalists as well as small group teaching by these experienced teachers.
The MacNeal IM training program supports each resident, staff, and faculty member through mentorship and fostering a positive learning environment. Each resident has a faculty member who is his or her advisor, guiding professional goals and overall progress throughout residency with regularly scheduled consultations.
Given the challenges that COVID-19 pandemic has presented for applicants and the difficulties associated with traveling, our recruitment season will be entirely virtual. We are excited to "virtually" meet you and share with you what we believe makes our program special.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if we can help answer any other questions about our program.
