Welcome to the Internal Medicine residency program at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

We feel our residency program is among the strongest in the Southeast, which stems from several factors, including a diverse patient population, a heavy emphasis on effective teaching, a focus on the appropriate balance between supervision and autonomy, and consistent attention to appropriate feedback and evaluations.

Our mission is to develop physician leaders through highest quality patient-centered care; acquisition, discovery, and application of medical knowledge; and respect for all members of the health care team. Read more about our core values.

Educate. Inspire. Serve. 

Learn More About Our Program

What makes our residency program unique? People. We talk with our residents about three main things in their development: having a growth mindset, a team mentality, and a passion for doing what's right for the patient. Our staff and faculty are approachable and willing to help residents become the best doctors they can be. If a supportive, hands-on learning atmosphere sounds like the right fit for you—consider furthering your training at UMMC.

"My favorite thing about UMMC is that from the attendings to fellows to residents to medical students, we are all one big family. I was surprised by the way my attendings sought to know me as a person rather than just a resident and I’ve been amazed by the level of support this program has offered in times of need. If I had to go back and do it again, I’d choose UMMC every time."
