Letter from the Director

Thank you for considering the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Rochester General Hospital. Here you will be challenged both clinically and academically, and supported by a team dedicated to your success.

Highlights of the program include: A strong clinical experience. Rochester General Hospital is a 528 bed tertiary referral center with one of the busiest emergency rooms in New York State. We serve a large inner city, suburban and rural population. Direct access to faculty who love to teach. I came here because of the opportunity to teach residents as well as practice, and so did the rest of the faculty in the Department of Medicine.
