About Us

The Internal Medicine Residency at Baylor College of Medicine is one of the most comprehensive and diverse in the country. The program provides residents opportunities to develop essential clinical skills as an internist, to learn the many important diagnostic and therapeutic concepts in internal medicine, and to evolve as complete physicians who possess not only textbook knowledge but also the many personal attributes that patients expect of outstanding physicians.

We train the very best internal medicine residents in the country. Every physician graduates from the program as an excellent internist, and the breadth of clinical training opportunities allows residents to plan any type of career in internal medicine - the practice of general internal medicine, hospitalist, medical subspecialty, or an academic career. With extensive clinical training in four hospitals and several unique outpatient settings, Baylor residents have opportunities to customize their electives to focus on their chosen area of interest.
