Welcome from the PD
Welcome to the Rush University Internal Medicine Residency website. Rush is a wonderful place to pursue clinical training in Internal Medicine and has a strong history of public service and a commitment to patient safety. Our clinical training environment is quite simply one of the best available. Outstanding patient care is provided by a nursing staff that is nationally recognized as a four-time winner of the prestigious Magnet award. It is further strengthened by an outstanding faculty that promotes learning in an environment of mutual respect. Our residents contribute greatly to this environment as well and are known for their equally high standards of patient care and safety. They consistently embody a wonderful spirit of collaboration and teamwork amongst themselves and with other members of the healthcare team.
Our program is also committed to providing an environment that offers opportunities in education and scholarship for our residents. Our goal is to provide a rich educational environment that provides our trainees with a variety of options to enhance their core training but also to prepare some graduates for future leadership roles in clinical medicine, education and research. We currently offer a Global Health track and will be adding a track in Patient Safety and Quality Improvement starting July 1, 2016. Additionally, we sponsor residents in the ABIM Physician Scientist Pathway and offer an advanced curriculum in both medical education and scholarly activity, with the immediate goal of improving academic skills during training, as well as to improve these skills for the career path that follows residency.
We believe that this program is a great destination for Internal Medicine training and preparation for an exciting career in medicine, and we know it is also located in a world class city. If Chicago and Rush seem like a good fit for you, we really hope you take the time to visit during the next interview season.
