The Internal Medicine Residency Program takes on ten new residents each year with new interns coming from all ends of the country. Our program prides itself in developing highly trained physicians that will have the knowledge and skills to pursue any career path they desire. Graduates from the program have gone on to practice inpatient medicine, outpatient medicine, joined Graduate Medical Education Programs as attending faculty members, as well as pursued further education in fellowships. 

Our residents are a tight knit group that supports each other in and out of the hospital setting. They make it a point to get together outside of the Residency setting for different types of events including: rafting trips, skiing trips, dinners, movie nights, etc. This has proven to directly correlate to the success and ability for them to work in a team setting in stressful situations throughout their training. Residents that join our team here at Parkview Medical Center will be fully supported by the hospital administration, GME staff, as well as the other residents in the program.
