Welcome! We are so excited that you are interested in joining The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) Internal Medicine family. The mission of our Internal Medicine Residency Program is to offer an excellent academic environment with diverse clinical and research opportunities to achieve individual career aspirations.

We promote a self-directed, active learning atmosphere by practicing under supervision and teaching. The clinical learning culture provides a wide range of clinical experiences designed to prepare residents for a multitude of different career opportunities in internal medicine. The clinical experience is provided in a collegial environment and promotes camaraderie between the faculty and the residents. The organization of medical education is flexible and can be adapted to the changing healthcare needs while still promoting the core values of ownership, responsibility, professionalism, compassion and patient-centered care. The program offers broad-based training in general internal medicine and its specialties. The multi-ethnic and culturally diverse community offers a rich learning experience. The residents achieve cultural competence and learn to provide healthcare without disparities.

Our residents receive a superior education in both the art and the science of medicine from highly qualified and dedicated faculty. As residents gain experience and demonstrate growth in their ability to care for patients, they assume progressive primary patient care responsibilities with greater autonomy. The residents learn the value of interdisciplinary care coordination and collaboration with consultants and other ancillary healthcare providers. They develop skills for a leadership role in a wide array of practice settings.

Graduates acquire proficiency in all six domains of core competency and are well prepared for independent unsupervised practice. Graduating residents are proficient in the areas of quality improvement and patient safety and practice value-based and team-based care. The program cultivates the habit of lifelong learning with the application of evidence-based medicine in clinical practice. Our graduates have secured competitive fellowship programs, pursued careers as primary care physicians, hospitalists, subspecialty consultants and clinician-educators.
