Residency in Internal Medicine

Director: Arnold R. Eiser, MD, FACP

Program overview

The Internal Medicine Residency Program has been part of a long and rich tradition of providing excellent graduate medical education at Mercy Catholic Medical Center (MCMC). The philosophy of the program is to offer a challenging, stimulating and well-structured curriculum that develops physicians who:

• Possess a broad, deep knowledge of Internal Medicine
• Perform outstanding clinical care
• Practice integrated, cost effective, evidence-based medicine
• Provide compassionate care and
• Maintain clinical competence through self-directed learning.

The program consistently produces physicians who are prepared for multiple career paths in hospitalist practice, internal medicine subspecialties, clinical private practice, and academic medicine. The faculty is committed to sustaining the three-year American Board of Internal Medicine Certifying (ABIM) Examination passage rate of 94%.

As a community-based academic hospital system, MCMC provides residents with a diverse case learning experience at both Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital (MFH), which serves the suburban patients of Eastern Delaware County and Southwest Philadelphia, and Mercy Philadelphia Hospital, which serves the urban population of West Philadelphia. These two hospitals form MCMC. A busy and intensivist-supervised ICU (Intensive Care Unit) gives excellent critical care training including in post-CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft) and post-stenting patients.
