SAMC’s internal medicine residency program received confirmation of initial accreditation last week from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The residency program is administered through SAMC’s Graduate Medical Education (GME) department.
James C. Jones, DO, FACEP, medical director of Emergency Medicine, is the Director of Medical Education for both residency and medical student training at SAMC. Dr. Jones said that the SAMC GME department plans to build on the success of our internal medicine program by adding residency training programs in other specialties within the next few years.
Initial accreditation allows SAMC to accept 13 medical school graduates into the residency program beginning July 1, 2018. Interviews for residency positions will begin this fall. The internal medicine residency is a three year program and is open to DO’s and MD’s.
