Welcome to Riverside Methodist Hospital's Internal Medicine Residency Program. As Program Director, I invite you to take a few minutes to browse this website. 

We are a three year, ACGME fully-accredited program. On average, we accept 12-14 PGY-1 residents via application through ERAS annually.

I believe our program is a unique hybrid of academic and community-based teaching experiences; we have a long tradition of excellence in Medical Education. We emphasize a resident's personal motivation and work ethic. Our program features one-on-one faculty mentorship with the goal of turning individuals into outstanding physicians. Our graduates are successful in obtaining fellowships, academic appointments and careers in private practice.

Academically, we place emphasis on didactic teaching complemented by patient-specific/problem-focused bedside teaching.

  • Our curriculum features morning reports organized by the Chief Resident and noon lectures presented by the faculty.
  • Board Review conferences, Grand Rounds, service-specific conferences and an Interdisciplinary Conference are held each week.
  • Residents actively participate in conferences and are required to present at Morning Report, Grand Rounds and the Ohio ACP Annual Session.
  • The Center for Medical Education + InnovationTM (CME+ITM), the only civilian facility of its kind in the world, provides 21st century training technology to our residents, allowing "hands-on" learning through simulators in the Virtual Care Unit and clinical skills labs.

 

As the flagship hospital of the OhioHealth system, Riverside Methodist Hospital is a busy tertiary care referral center that has successfully maintained a community hospital environment.

  • Riverside ranks FIFTH in the entire nation for volume of admissions. This provides residents in our program an unparalleled opportunity to care for patients with complex, multi-system diseases in a collegial atmosphere.
  • Over 30% of residents' training occurs in the outpatient setting.
  • Our teaching faculty is comprised of experienced internists and subspecialists, most of whom volunteer their time to teach residents.
  • Clinically, the program is structured to assure that residents assume progressive responsibility in patient care and develop expertise in invasive procedures critical to the practice of internal medicine, placing them ahead of their peers.

 

We enjoy strong affiliations with The Ohio State University College of Medicine, the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. We also offer a wide variety of medical student rotations.

Thank you for taking time to visit our program. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
