The goal of Internal Medicine residency training at KSMU is to guide each resident to develop his or her maximum potential and ensure they are well-trained physicians and prepared for internal medicine clinical practice or to pursue further specialty training, if interested.
KSMU internal medicine residency emphasizes training in general internal medicine by offering core base rotations at CTUs of participating sites and outpatient polyclinic, as well as providing training in subspecialty wards at the participating tertiary care hospitals.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program is designed to provide increasing responsibility to the trainees through all years. As the first year resident, the trainee is assigned to 4-week inpatient rotation units under the supervision of a senior resident, the academic faculty and one attending physician (we call them clinical faculty) within each of the departments. The senior resident role is assigned to PGY3 residents. In the 3rd year, the residents also gains experience and responsibility by participating in the consultation and triage service within inpatient facilities, and increasing responsibility at community based general internal medicine (CTU) rotations.
Our residents are required to complete at least one research project during their training; the faculty from Internal Medicine Department and subspecialty departments are very approachable and supportive of resident research interests. We facilitate building resident capabilities in research through journal club sessions in a regular basis.
