Residency Program Specifics

The Wright State University Internal Medicine Residency Program emphasizes education that will develop versatile clinicians capable of handling both general medical outpatient issues and inpatient critical care. On completion of the program, residents are prepared to enter general internal medicine practice, hospitalist practice or to continue into subspecialty fellowship training. Residents care for a diverse patient population at the four major participating hospitals: the Premier Health hospitals (Good Samaritan Hospital and Miami Valley Hospital), the Dayton Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Wright-Patterson Medical Center.

Special Features

  • Electronic medical record at all teaching sites.
  • Emphasis on ambulatory training, with general medicine continuity clinics, experience in private physician offices, and elective options in ambulatory sites for training in orthopedics, gynecology, sports medicine, dermatology, allergy, ophthalmology, psychiatry, and otorhinolaryngology.
  • Program flexibility that allows residents' input in planning their education to meet future practice needs.
  • Coordination of conferences to cover core curriculum as well as special topics for residents at all sites.
  • 24-hour in-house intensivist coverage at Miami Valley Hospital.
