Internal Medicine Residency Program

Residency training extends beyond patient care. We expect our residents to develop the knowledge and skills in areas such as leadership, quality improvement, research, teaching, and community involvement.


Research

All of our residents participate in the Scholar Council, a longitudinal program with mentoring, opportunities for scholarly activity, and workshops on research skills throughout the year. Our residents showcase their work nationally through conferences and journal publications. Annually, our residents have around 100 conference presentation and around 30-40 published manuscripts. Our Departmental Blue Ridge Ranking is the highest of universities in Florida. USF Internal Medicine ranked 36 among all universities and 22 among state institutions.

Global & Community Outreach

In conjunction with the USF Morsani College of Medicine, our residents enjoy the opportunity to give back to several outreach clinics. The BRIDGE clinic, a student-run clinic, provides residents additional opportunities to hone their teaching skills with medical students while providing care. Tampa Bay Street Medicine provides access to healthcare to the homeless population through a mobile van service and pop up clinics on a regular basis. Several residents have enjoyed opportunities to provide healthcare, health education, and program & curriculum development to other countries. Our residents have traveled to Africa, China, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, and the Philippines, to name a few.
