The Office of Graduate Medical Education, which began in 1975 offers 37 internships, residencies and fellowship programs which provide graduate physicians with in-hospital training by experienced medical practitioners who are medical school faculty members. Instruction is given in disciplines such as pediatrics, family medicine, surgery, psychiatry and internal medicine.
Fourteen teaching affiliates participate in the residency training programs which provide real-life learning situations. The graduate school integrates the programs by rotating residents in a particular specialty through all hospitals offering that instruction.
The community-based Graduate Medical Education is one of the few residency programs in the nation in which all residencies are integrated among a number of hospitals as opposed to taking place within one fixed setting – such as a university hospital. All 14 community hospitals are aided 24-hours a day by EVMS residents involved in new treatment methods and research.
The Combined Family Medicine / Internal Medicine Residency is a four year program that confers board eligibility in Family Medicine and Internal Medicine.
The Department of General Internal Medicine and Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology are working together to offer an exciting combined residency.
