Letter from the Program Director - Internal Medicine at MedStar Franklin Square

"The success of a residency program is measured by the success of its graduates. Whether that success means finding the ideal primary care practice, the desired subspecialty fellowship position, or perhaps taking a nontraditional career path in business or public health, the specialty of internal medicine offers many exciting opportunities. It is the number one goal of this residency program to make sure that every resident succeeds. A diverse patient population, innovation in medical education, and the ability to pursue research and academic interests provide the foundation for a strong residency program. MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center's patient population allows exposure to the full spectrum of medical diseases. Our residents acquire expertise in the management of these illnesses preparing them for a career in general internal medicine or the background necessary to pursue subspecialty training.

Our curriculum recognizes that learners have different needs and we pride ourselves on meeting them through resident input, as well as individualizing the experience based on a resident's interests and career path.

Research opportunity is an essential part of the graduate medical education experience, both for future primary care physicians and for those planning on pursuing subspecialty training. Our facility and affiliated institutions offer a wide range of academic research options under the guidance of a faculty mentor.

All this is offered within the friendly environment of this suburban Baltimore hospital and outpatient center. General internal medicine or subspecialty, MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center can help get you there. I invite you to take a closer look at our academic medical center.
