Dear Applicants,

Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency program at North Shore Medical Center. I am delighted that you are interested in our program and hope the information below is helpful as you consider this exciting next step in your medical career. The Internal Medicine Residency program at NSMC trains dedicated physicians with outstanding clinical skills, with a commitment to compassionate patient-centered care and the ability to continually learn and adapt in an ever-changing health care system.

Our patient population is incredibly diverse and the medical complexity and acuity of the care we provide is remarkable for a community-based hospital. North Shore Medical Center’s affiliation with the Partners HealthCare network has poised us to take advantage of opportunities at Boston area hospitals (ranging from an inpatient neurology rotation at Massachusetts General Hospital, regular teaching conferences by MGH faculty, and tremendous research opportunities for our residents) while also maintaining our strong roots in the local North Shore community and the sense of camaraderie of a small, closely-knit program.

We are able to provide our residents with an excellent primary care clinic experience through the North Shore Physicians Group practices. This is a vibrant, innovative primary care model with a diverse patient population and clinic preceptors who are dedicated to teaching. Several of the primary care sites have been certified as patient-centered medical homes and this gives our residents a unique perspective on the direction in which primary care is headed.

The time you will spend in residency is one of immense personal and professional growth – pushing your limits, exploring a variety of career paths and laying the foundation for your skills as a physician. We are committed to coaching our residents during this time through collaborative teaching and learning and helping them excel in the paths they chose for themselves.

No talk of our residency program is complete without highlighting the strong sense of camaraderie and team-spirit that is evident here. Our residents support each other, cheer each other on and are a joyful and spirited group to be around!

I hope you will be inspired by what you read here and wish you the best of luck with your residency search.
