The Drexel/Hahnemann residency in internal medicine is a university-based training program in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. Residents rotate through Hahnemann University Hospital, a tertiary care referral center, and through Abington Memorial Hospital, a large, state-of-the-art community hospital with the only accredited trauma center in its county. The affiliation with Drexel University also provides a vast array of resources for our residents, including the only school of public health in Philadelphia and numerous research opportunities.

During their training, house officers are expected to take primary responsibility for the care of all their patients. The interns act as the primary care physicians and the residents act as supervisors, consultants, and educators to the team, which often includes third- and fourth-year medical students. As the house officers mature in knowledge and experience, their clinical responsibilities will also increase accordingly. At all levels there is support and supervision from attending faculty members, with an emphasis on mentoring our young physicians.

We offer a well-rounded clinical training program that includes rotating through a tertiary care and progressive community hospital, opportunities for further education and research at Drexel University, and commitment to you as an individual. Drexel University College of Medicine can provide residents superior training with skills for a successful lifelong career.
