Internal Medicine Residency

internal medicine residency group

We appreciate your interest in what we believe to be an outstanding internal medicine residency. Our goal is to ensure the success of each of our residents in achieving their career goals - hospitalist, primary care or subspecialty. We are a small program where every faculty member will know who you are and what drives you to be an outstanding doctor. Our experienced full-time faculty provide a strong supportive foundation for resident training in a dynamic learning environment.

There are ample opportunities to participate in research assisted by Novant Health’s dedicated research department. We support our residents to present posters and speak at regional, national, and international meetings.

If you have any questions, please contact Donna L. Gallagher, Internal Medicine Residency’s Program Administrator (see Contact Us). We hope you will seriously consider Novant Health when making this very crucial decision. Our program has been training residents since 1972 and growing stronger every year.
