Welcome from the Program Director
Welcome to the MCW Internal Medicine Residency Program web page. I have been program director here since 2004, and joined MCW in 1999. Prior to that I was on the faculty at Indiana University where I was the infectious diseases fellowship program director before leaving to come to MCW. I did my residency and fellowship training at the University of Virginia. While I have held several different positions in academic medicine, nothing has been as professionally satisfying and personally enjoyable as being the residency program director here.
Our program provides general medicine and sub-specialty experiences in both inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as a full spectrum of educational and research opportunities. If you're looking toward a career in internal medicine or one of the subspecialties, we welcome your application. Please use this site to learn more about the various tracks available within the residency program, as well as our subspecialty programs and divisions, and our faculty and their research.
