Internal Medicine Residency

Sindhu Joseph, MDWelcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency training program at 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.

In addition to daily bedside rounding by dedicated teaching faculty and small group teaching by these experienced teachers, the program offers daily Core Conferences delivered by MacNeal faculty members and professors at medical schools in the Chicago area. Each afternoon, dedicated teaching sessions occur with faculty and chief residents in Intern and Resident Reports. The program especially focuses on ABIM board preparation by providing educational materials for each resident and hosting weekly board review sessions throughout the academic year. The resident experience is enriched by the opportunity to teach internal medicine students who are part of each resident team.

Each resident has a faculty member who is his or her advisor, guiding professional goals and overall progress throughout residency with regularly scheduled consultations.

We hope that you are able to visit with our residents and faculty and see for yourself if the MacNeal IM training program is a good fit for you.
