Why choose CMU for internal medicine?

As a resident, you'll train in a team-oriented, supportive environment designed to shape competent and confident physicians. You'll learn to apply your knowledge at the patient bedside to a population with diverse medical conditions, growing proficient in advanced airway skills, vascular procedures such as arterial and central venous catheterizations, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and other Internal Medicine-based procedures.

Based in Michigan's Great Lakes Bay Region, the program gives residents access to state-of-the-art classrooms, an expansive library and a  clinical simulation center in the new CMU College of Medicine educational building.
