Internal Medicine Residency Program

Best of Both Worlds


The educational goals of our Internal Medicine program include training the residents in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients while emphasizing the principles of OPP/OMM, medical knowledge, patient care, professionalism, interpersonal skills, system based practice, and practice based learning.

The mission of the Parkview Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency is to provide excellent patient care and service to Southeastern Colorado. In doing so, we will produce a well-rounded general internist who is proficient in clinical medicine and exhibits empathy toward patients.

Parkview’s board of directors in conjunction with the Colorado Board of Health System has made the decision to implement a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy for the Parkview Health System.  This plan was developed to protect our patients, staff, community and ourselves.  The vaccine will be required for employees, medical providers, volunteers, students, contract staff, vendors and board members and will have the requirement of being fully vaccinated by November 1, 2021. Exemptions will be granted for valid medical and religious reasons.  Anyone who receives an exemption will be required to test weekly and wear a mask at all times.
