A Message from the Residency Program Director

Gregory Kane, M.D.

Welcome to the Jefferson Internal Medicine Residency Web Site! We're excited that you've sought to learn more about our educational programs.

The goal of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is superior training in Internal Medicine. It is our intent that each resident will acquire the requisite clinical skills and medical knowledge, professional attitudes and behaviors, approach to problem solving, and concern for their patients that is characteristic of the Internist.

The majority of the resident's experience will be at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. It is here that each resident has the opportunity to work with our nationally recognized faculty in the inpatient and outpatient arenas, and develop continuity care skills in the Jefferson Hospital Ambulatory Practice. Selected rotations at affiliated hospitals are designed to broaden the resident's experience beyond tertiary care. Residents have the opportunity to develop skills in research, and for those interested in research careers, elective time in the laboratory of a faculty preceptor is available. As an academic program, the interns and residents not only learn but also learn to teach. Through informal discussions and an a formal teaching skills seminar, the residents develop proficiency as educators to further enhance their preparation for academic medicine or clinical practice, where education of patients and families is a major goal.

Whether your career goal is Academic Medicine or Clinical Practice in General Internal Medicine or one of the Subspecialties you will find the training experiences and education at Jefferson outstanding preparation for your future career. Please acquaint yourself with our programs
