Our program has been around for more than 30 years! Our success comes from treating residents as adult learners. We strive to balance a rigorous inpatient and ambulatory training with expectations of independent thought and a sense of ownership in patient care. Residents thrive here. Medical students from the University of Rochester repeatedly choose RGH as the preferred site for their Internal Medicine training.
Rochester General Hospital is a 528-bed "community" hospital and has been designated as one of the Top 100 cardiac hospital in the nation, eight times. Our curriculum uses the teaching strength of over 70 RGH-based University of Rochester faculty, and more than 100 community physicians.
Our curriculum, even at a glance, shows careful design and purpose: strong training in evidence-based medicine, guidance to ask a clinical question and work through a scholarship project, complete with presentation and feedback. Why not a half-day per week clinic in Pulmonary, GI, Nephrology, or even Sports Medicine? Is any other program doing all this?
Rochester General Hospital is proud to be an affiliate of University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry and to be an active participant in the University's teaching programs.
