Clinical Rotation Sites

The Internal Medicine Residency uses numerous clinical settings throughout the Jefferson Health System to give our house staff the most diverse educational experience. In addition to working in various Thomas Jefferson University affiliated subspecialty practices and local community Internal Medicine practices, house officers will spend time at the following hospitals and facilities.

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital

This 700+ bed acute care hospital provides quaternary care for Philadelphia and the surrounding region.  The majority of clinical rotations takes place at this location.  Residents rotating here have the opportunity to care for patients in multiple settings, including outpatient clinics, general medicine and subspecialty wards, and medical and cardiac intensive care units. Given its location in Center City Philadelphia, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital serves patients from a wide range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds, which provides our residents with a diverse educational experience.

Methodist Hospital

This 200+ bed hospital, located in the heart of South Philadelphia, serves a diverse population that includes a large Italian-American community and a growing number of Southeast Asian immigrants.  Residents rotating at Methodist Hospital gain exposure to community medical practice by rotating on the teaching floor service and in the medical intensive care unit.  A limited number of ambulatory experiences are also offered here.

Continuity Clinics & Ambulatory Sites

Each categorical resident is assigned a clinic day and site – Jefferson Hospital Ambulatory Practice (JHAP), Jefferson Internal Medicine Associates (JIMA), or Jefferson's Women's Primary Care. At each of these clinics the residents are responsible for their own panel of patients, which they build over three years. The clinics are located one block from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, an urban population.

Additionally, residents have the opportunity to spend their ambulatory block at various primary care clinics within the Philadelphia and New Jersey suburbs. These private practices are affiliated with the Jefferson Health System and serve a more suburban and rural patient population.
