Welcome to the website of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. We are located in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, and are close to all of the benefits this world class city has to offer. We have a long and proud tradition of graduate medical education that dates back to the 1952 and pride ourselves on the strength of our clinical training and the success of our graduates. Our goal is to provide our physicians-in-training with the exposure to a wide range of pathology while learning from an outstanding faculty in an atmosphere of team-based approach, collegiality and mutual respect. We feel this combination makes St. Elizabeth's a unique and wonderful place to train and work.
St Elizabeth’s Medical Center is a major teaching affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine. Residents are granted academic appointments (Clinical Associate) at the medical school with an added benefit of online access to the Hirsh Health Sciences Library. In addition, residents are actively involved in the teaching of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year medical students who rotate at the hospital. Our residents frequently receive teaching citations from 3rd year medical students on their internal medicine clerkship.
We have recently restructured our inpatient rotations to provide coverage in a geographic model to help improve interdisciplinary teamwork. We have also implemented a “4+2” block schedule model to avoid conflict between the residents’ continuity clinic and their inpatient responsibilities. We continue to look for ways to improve our program and enhance the educational experience of the residents.
These recent changes have also enhanced our ability for the program to allow residents to feel more comfortable practicing in an outpatient setting. We have enhanced our continuity clinic experience, and our residents provide continuity of care at hospital-based and community-based primary care practices.
In addition to providing an educational experience that will prepare our residents for a career in primary care and hospital medicine, we have a strong record in matching our residents to outstanding subspecialty fellowships. We provide an academic environment that promotes scholarly activities, and a mentoring and advocacy program for our residents to be able to be highly successful in their subspecialty of choice.
We hope that this website will provide you with an overview of our
residency program and our commitment to medical education and
excellence. If you need any further information, please contact us at SEMInternal.Medicine@steward.org.
