The Internal Medicine Residency Program provides three years of outstanding training which prepares residents to serve as primary care providers and consultants in general internal medicine. The training program is fully accredited by the ACGME and, at completion, graduates are fully prepared to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examination. More importantly, graduates are excellent clinicians who are fully prepared to work independently in a variety of settings. Since EAMC serves as both a primary care facility and a tertiary care medical center, the depth and variety of patients and illnesses are unmatched. The first year of training is concentrated in the internal medicine inpatient and intensive care settings. Each successive year of training offers the resident more elective, outpatient clinic, and research time along with increasing levels of responsibility for teaching and decision making.
Residents may elect a wide range of clinical and research activities, with rotations offered in every medicine subspecialty. In each of the past five years, EAMC residents have won research competitions at local, regional, and national levels. The teaching staff maintains an active interest in clinical research with a large number of staff serving as investigators for funded research projects. All graduates are certified in the full range of procedures required of a general internist and, upon graduation, assume challenging and rewarding positions as staff internists. Our graduates are very competitive for fellowship training, as evidenced by a selection rate better than most other Army MEDCENs over the past two years. In summary, the Internal Medicine Residency Program at EAMC is one of the finest training programs in the military. Come train with us in Augusta, Georgia, Home of the Masters!
