Message from the Program Director
Bridgeport Hospital, an integral part of the Yale New Haven health system, has been training internists for more than 50 years. This is an institution with strong ties to Yale University School of Medicine and a demonstrated commitment to training humane and skilled physicians in more than 10 specialties and subspecialties. In the Department of Medicine, we have a large and very talented faculty whose credo is to help you make the most of your potential – and they are committed to help you meet this goal.
Resident trainees in Internal Medicine can expect to join a highly talented group of peers, many with advanced degrees and published scholarship. Three years of training at Bridgeport Hospital will, through a broad array of didactic and patient-care experiences, prepare you well for a career in Internal Medicine or for subspecialty fellowships. Most residents continue scholarly activities to complement their clinical training. As a former graduate of the program, I have always felt that the collegial spirit that permeates the program and the hospital is our strongest asset.
The measure by which we grade ourselves will primarily be the quality of our product. Over the past few years, almost 100% of our graduates who sat for their Boards passed on the first attempt. Recent graduates have been accepted to fellowships at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Yale University, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Pennsylvania, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Institute at the University of Washington, the NIH and the National Cancer Institute. It is most satisfying however to help mold ethical and compassionate physicians, competent in internal medicine and skilled in communication whether they be academicians or clinicians, specialists or in primary care who can serve their patients in the true spirit of our profession.
I invite you to visit our program and judge for yourself whether this is the right match for you.
