The Vanderbilt Internal Medicine Residency Program provides rigorous training for future health care leaders who will improve the human condition through the practice of medicine
Our Internal Medicine Residency Program has been training distinguished physicians and scientists since 1925 and is among the top internal medicine programs in the country today.
The Vanderbilt tradition fosters strong peer and faculty mentor relationships with emphasis on excellence in patient care, attention to detail, and a scholarly approach to clinical issues. The qualities we value most are intellectual curiosity, honesty, compassion, and genuine enthusiasm for learning and for sharing what has been learned.
The Department of Medicine and our Residency program uphold the university’s highest academic standards, emphasizing the values of patient care, discovery, diversity and inclusion, mentorship, and professionalism. Our program provides residents with exposure to a full array of experiences in all areas of internal medicine.
