Internal Medicine Residency Program
Welcome to UC Davis Internal Medicine!
Thank you for your interest in UC Davis. The mission of the UC Davis Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train outstanding internists and to help each resident achieve his or her ultimate career goal after residency. I liken our program to a community of pluripotent stem cells – one in which each stem cell (or resident) can differentiate into a wide array of mature cell types (internists). Our diverse training milieu allows residents to become a rural primary care physician, clinician-scientist, hospitalist, academic or community subspecialist, or clinician-educator. We have an established track record of highly successful graduates engaged in a variety of different career paths.
I hope this website gives you a sense of what makes our residents - and our program - so special. There are many excellent internal medicine training programs that boast dedicated faculty, smart residents, and advanced clinical care systems. UC Davis is one of those programs. Here are features that set us apart from other programs (click on each bullet for more details).
- A collegial, positive learning environment
- Specialized tracks to meet each resident’s educational needs and goals
- Incredible diversity of patients and care settings including public, VA, and managed care (Kaiser Permanente)
- An innovative scheduling system – 4+1+1
- A great place to live – Sacramento
- State of the art electronic medical record (EMR) system
While I am proud of our program’s unique accomplishments, the number one reason to come here is the people. We have a wonderful group of residents, an incredible cadre of distinguished faculty, and supportive, friendly staff who all strive to make your residency training outstanding and fun. I hope that you come to Sacramento and see for yourself.
