The MGH Internal Medicine is structured to train thoughtful and independent physicians who are prepared for diverse careers in medicine. The principal strength of the MGH program is the significant time devoted to direct inpatient and outpatient care in a manner which promotes both meaningful responsibility and appropriate supervision. On the inpatient side, residents rotate through two general medicine services, intensive care units, the emergency department, and consultation services. Outpatient education is provided by the ambulatory care rotation (ACR), ambulatory subspecialty rotation (ASR), and a weekly continuity clinic.

Experience gained from patient care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings is complemented by daily and weekly conferences which range from formal didactic lectures, to case-based interactive discussions. Electives provide time for residents to pursue other interests in medical subspecialties, research, and self-designed rotations. A wide spectrum of basic and clinical research is conducted every year by MGH residents and countless opportunities are available at MGH and throughout the rest of the Harvard community. For those with an interest in international health, the Global Health Program complements traditional training with international health experiences.
