About the Internal Medicine Residency

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Internal Medicine Residency is committed to providing the training and resources needed to prepare graduates to be exceptional clinicians, and to be prepared to tackle individual and societal healthcare challenges as leaders in academic medicine.

The core of the program is comprehensive clinical training and education, working with world-renowned faculty in academic medicine. Building on the strong base of clinical reasoning, we aim to provide individualized career mentoring for residents as well as abundant opportunities to gain the skills needed to impact healthcare in a variety of ways. The vast number of researchers specializing in everything from Medicare organization and healthcare policy to personalized medicine to oncologic immunotherapies allows for trainees to experience the breadth of research within academic medicine. Additionally, we have multiple tracks within the residency, such as the Global Health Equity Track and the Management Leadership Track, that enable residents to work with policy and clinical experts both here and abroad.

Throughout our residency, we emphasize humanism both with our patients and our residents. From guided trips to the Museum of Fine Art to the monthly humanism curriculum, we focus on maintaining the well-being of all those who are involved in healthcare. And our residents carry this emphasis with them, continuing to participate in extracurricular activities and spending time with their loved ones and families outside the walls of the hospital.

We are committed to attracting and promoting housestaff that reflect our mission and the diversity of the broad diversity of the patients we care for.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
