Welcome to the website of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. We are located in the Brighton area of the Boston and we are close to all the benefits this world class city has to offer. We have a long, proud tradition of graduate medical education that dates back to the 1930s and pride ourselves on the strength of our clinical training and the success of our graduates. Our goal is to provide the resident with the exposure to a wide range of pathology while learning from our outstanding faculty in an atmosphere of collegiality and mutual respect. We feel this combination makes St. Elizabeth's a unique and wonderful place to train and work.
Recently, we have undergone a revision of our inpatient coverage scheme to provide coverage in a geographic model to help improve interdisciplinary teamwork and have implemented a “4+2” block schedule model to avoid conflict between the resident’s continuity clinic and their inpatient responsibilities. We also continue to look for ways of improving our program and enhancing the educational experience of the residents in our program.
These recent changes have also enhanced our ability for the program to allow residents to feel more comfortable practicing in an outpatient setting. For the continuity clinics we have a resident clinic (MASE clinic) where about one-third of our residents manage their own panel of patients. The other residents have their outpatient clinics in actual community practices in the Brighton area so they know how practices are run and care is provided in the “real world”.
As well as providing an education that will prepare the resident for careers in primary care and hospitalist medicine, we have an outstanding record of placing residents in strong fellowships throughout the country. We provide an academic environment as well as mentoring and advocacy for our residents to be able to be highly successful in their subspecialty of choice.
We hope this website allows you to get a feel of our residency and our
commitment to excellence as well as our commitment to our
residents. If you need any further information, please contact us.
