Program overview

The Internal Medicine Residency program at our hospital accepted its first residents in 2017 and graduated its first class in June 2020. We will recruit 20 residents for categorical training for the upcoming academic year.

Our growing integrated network of care includes four hospitals, six outpatient centers, two cancer centers and 700 physicians at more than 160 affiliated locations stretching from the Alleghany Highlands and Rockbridge County to the Roanoke and New River Valleys.

Our network allows us to reach the goal of providing the necessary resources and the educational experiences to produce doctors who are competent and comfortable practicing medicine in their chosen fields upon graduation. This may be as subspecialty physicians, hospitalists or ambulatory primary care physicians.

We place an emphasis on providing exemplary opportunities that will translate to achieving superb board scores, high-level placement in fellowships and ultimately becoming a well-balanced, effective and fulfilled physician.
