About the internal medicine residency program
The Internal Medicine Residency Program provides training and education to the residents in the broad field of general internal medicine. The resident will develop the skills and competencies necessary to practice in a primary care setting, to practice as a hospitalist, or to enter subspecialty training with confidence.
Program objectives are specifically designed to meet the needs of the graduate who intends to enter Internal Medicine or do further study in a specialized area. The rotating services provided include all inpatient and ambulatory care departments.
The primary objective of this three-year Internal Medicine Practice Residency Program is to provide a well-organized, progressive program with emphasis on education over service. The program is affiliated with the UNTHSC/TCOM-Ft. Worth.
For the upcoming academic year, CCMC is anticipating filling 10 PGY I spots. All applications must be submitted through ERAS and applicants must be registered with the NRMP.
