Internal Medicine - Riverside Methodist

A Unique Hybrid Between an Academic and Community-based Hospital

Our program provides residents a variety of clinical and procedural experiences with a diverse patient population, while still maintaining an emphasis on education. Its strengths include collaboration, autonomy and a full-time dedicated teaching staff that provides a challenging but user-friendly clinical, learning environment.

Upon completion of training, our residents are well prepared for a career, whether it’s pursuing a fellowship program, hospital medicine or an ambulatory primary care practice. 


Additional Program Information

Ambulatory Clinic

We have a recently renovated, free standing ambulatory clinic on campus, which features 20 patient examination rooms to facilitate the 130 half-day continuity clinics required by the ACGME during the three-year residency. Residents are exposed to a diverse patient population that provides a broad range of socioeconomic and case complexity. They are supported by

  • board certified attending physicians
  • onsite laboratory
  • full-time pharmacy
  • full-time social worker
  • financial counseling

The community medicine clinic also provides exposure to a variety of sub-specialty clinics, including hematology/oncology, gastroenterology, pulmonary, rheumatology, behavioral medicine, geriatrics and endocrinology. Surgery and dermatology resident clinics provide easy access to these specialty clinics for our patients.  

Clinic Time
Residents average five half days of continuity clinics per week, along with two to three half days of administration time. Administrative time is used to facilitate patient refills, laboratory results and phone notes, as well as provide an opportunity to further advance scholarly activity/quality improvement projects.

Scholarly Activities and Quality Improvement

We have full-time, dedicated faculty members who are available to provide support and guidance for residents on their scholarly activities and quality improvement projects. Residents have displayed posters and given presentations at local, state and national conferences. Additionally, they have published case reports on unusual diseases in medical journals and published clinical research in sub-specialty medical journals. They have also presented and published on the topic of quality improvement projects.
