Internal Medicine Residency Program

Internal Medicine Residency Program

The goal of the Internal Medicine Residency Program is to develop outstanding internists through superior training in primary care for hospital medicine or for subsequent fellowship training in a variety of sub-specialties. The program learning environment allows each resident to acquire not only the requisite clinical skills and medical knowledge, but also the professional attitudes and behaviors, effective communication technique and self-assessment tools that are essential to the successful practice of medicine.


Huntington Hospital provides ample opportunities for the residents to have excellent training experiences. There are no fellows so you will be able to do many procedures if you’re interested in doing so. For example, you are able to help run codes as an intern, and I already did an intubation on my 3rd week of residency! There is an appropriate amount of autonomy to allow you to learn and grow as a resident. You get 1:1 time with faculty who really enjoy teaching residents. The atmosphere at Huntington Hospital is really welcoming to diversity, from the cafeteria workers to nurses to faculty, everyone is really kind and genuinely cares about your education and well-being.”

“When considering Huntington Hospital, the term ‘Huntington Family’ is not only a commonly spoken phrase, but more of a mentality and a foundation to our success. Our doctors take pride and ownership of their failures and successes, and are here to help carry each other when in need. I know that this is a place where we prioritize success as a whole, and not individual accolades. This way of being carries us through difficult and stressful times, as we know that the Huntington Family is something we can depend on.”
