Introduction

The Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program at Rush University Medical Center and Stroger Hospital of Cook County trains residents in both ambulatory and hospital medicine with an emphasis on the skills required for primary care practice. Residents divide their time evenly between Rush University Medical Center, one of the country’s premier university medical centers and Stroger Hospital of Cook County, a storied public hospital with a long tradition of educational training and caring for the underserved. Located one block from each other, the two institutions’ clinical and academic experiences provide for exceptionally diverse and complementary training.

Our residents are skilled at preventive medicine, acute care, chronic care and critical care. Our program emphasizes the care of vulnerable and underserved populations.
