Message From the Director

Thank you for visiting our Internal Medicine Residency Program website.

Mary Beth Poston, MDWe are very proud of the quality of our training program. As Program Director, I am intensely committed to maintaining and improving the quality of the Internal Medicine training you receive with us, to fostering a collegial and nurturing atmosphere that will make you glad you chose to train here, and to assisting you in achieving your desired career goals.

Our training program stresses progressive responsibility and resident decision making. This is done by allowing resident autonomy with supervision by a dedicated teaching faculty that is appropriate to the level of training. We also stress learning by teaching, and we have USC medical students functioning alongside our residents. Our program operates out of two excellent hospitals with abundant pathology, both common and rare. Our outpatient continuity clinic has the atmosphere of a private practice with a fully dedicated teaching faculty to guide you as well as an extremely skilled nursing (ancillary) staff. Our residents and faculty have access to the most modern technical advances, but we still stress the gratifying skills of medical problem solving.

Whether your goal is subspecialty fellowships or general Internal Medicine practice, our residents have all been successful in finding the additional training or practice opportunities they desire.

I hope we have the chance to meet so you can see our training program and our city, and understand why we are so proud.

Mary Beth Poston, MD
