Welcome to Our Program

Letter From Our Residency Chiefs

We are delighted that you are considering Internal Medicine residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

As chiefs, we believe that each resident has a unique career path. Our goal is to ensure that each and every resident achieves their full potential. Our program's strengths are its outstanding and diverse residents, our caring faculty and the wealth of training experience. We believe that our residents receive a rich exposure to clinical conditions at the bedside, which is complemented by relevant, evidence-based teaching on rounds, morning report and noon conference.

Our residents thrive because of the supportive atmosphere that we maintain in our program. Our training environment ensures camaraderie. The sense of togetherness among our residents is immediately evident. The department of medicine hosts a variety of social events, including a welcome party, golf and bowling tournaments and an end-of-the-year "chief roast."

We certainly look forward to meeting you and hope that you enjoy our Southern hospitality.
