A Welcome Message from the Program Director:

I'm delighted you have chosen to visit our web page and invite you to look around and learn about our Program.(For a quick overview follow this link to our Top Ten Reasons to Choose St. Mary's.)

If you accept this invitation, you will find a Program that offers a structured, university-style training experience with superb,engaged faculty and enthusiastic residents in a modern, well-run, truly patient-centered, resident friendly, university-affiliated community hospital. Our residents function as caring physicians, not technicians, receiving high quality training that is essentially free of educationally nonproductive service responsibilities, in a learning environment focused on providing exceptional, safe, high quality patient care. The Program, while demanding, is humane, supportive, and committed to providing our residents with the broad medical knowledge, sophisticated diagnostic reasoning skills, practice improvement skills, and life-time learning skills that characterize the superb internist. As a result, our residents leave here very well prepared for their next career step - whether that's office internal medicine, hospital medicine or a subspecialty fellowship.
