Preliminary Internal Medicine Residency Program

What Our Residents Say...

"The Akron General Internal Medicine department is very interested in individual resident education and specialty interests. As a preliminary resident I have four months of elective time, including one month for an away elective which allows me to tailor my internship year to my particular interests and needs. I was given autonomy from day one, and have been constantly challenged to learn more and stay current. The department also strongly encourages all residents to partake in research and provides a great deal of support throughout the process. My schedule has given me ample time for outside learning, pursuing my interests and hobbies, and spending time with family and friends.

Akron has many of the benefits of a large city without many of the hassles. It is a university town with great restaurants, arts, sports, and entertainment. "

"I am not originally from the Akron area but I heard from a family friend that Akron General is a great place for developing a strong medical foundation as well as an excellent bedside manner. During my time here I have experienced first hand the great team camaraderie present in the Internal Medicine Residency Program. I have had time to spend with my two children because of a very resident friendly call schedule. My family loves Akron because there a lot of activities we can do together."
