Internal Medicine Residency
Inspira Internal Medicine Residency Program is proud of training internal medicine physicians who practice evidence-based medicine and competently provide the highest quality of care for our community. We are dedicated to promoting the sense of co-ownership of the program through fostering our residents’ growth as individuals, as professionals, and as leaders. We value the balance of workload and education, as well as supervision and independence.
About Our Program
The Internal Medicine Residency at Inspira Medical Center Vineland offers comprehensive, three-year training accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are centrally located in Vineland, New Jersey, less than an hour from both center city Philadelphia and the Jersey shore.
Our hospital serves a broad and diverse patient population from all socioeconomic and demographic groups. This makes the extent and variety of pathology and the acuity of cases available for the residents’ clinical training exceptional for a community teaching hospital.
In addition to the normal clinical and academic experiences one expects from any residency, we also offer a Mentorship Program for all residents in the program. Every resident is matched to a faculty mentor for the three years of their training, who serves as a general guide and advisor as the resident develops and advances through training.
Individuals with a particular interest in Critical Care may take note of the fact that our high acuity multi-disciplinary 36-bed Intensive Care Unit is the home base for an ACGME accredited Critical Care fellowship.
Inspira’s Internal Medicine Residency Program includes a robust curriculum supported by dedicated faculty, as well as a competitive salary and benefits package, access to resident wellness programs and more.
Resident Lectures (7:15 to 8 AM)
Participation in research or other scholarly activity is an integral aspect of the Internal Medicine training program at Inspira. There is a robust research program utilizing a series of databases which are available to residents who are interested in performing analyses of this data for retrospective studies.
Residents are welcome and encouraged to design and initiate studies of their own with the participation of a faculty mentor if they prefer. The program has developed a core of faculty members to serve as mentors for research or other scholarly activity, such as case reports, or residents may enlist the support of other interested faculty members.
An annual Research Week is held internally every spring and residents often submit and present abstracts and posters at various national/international meetings.
The physical and emotional well-being of the residents is of paramount concern both to the leadership of the program as well as the entire Department of Graduate Medical Education. A Resident Wellness Committee exists, with representatives from all programs to address issues of concern in this regard and to assure that steps are taken to alleviate any factors that may cause undue stresses or burdens on residents.
Within the Internal Medicine program specifically, periodic social and team-building events are held to help the residents “decompress” and alleviate some of routine stresses of the work and training environment.
Following training in Internal Medicine at Inspira, residents are well prepared to pursue whatever career path they choose, whether that be additional subspecialty (fellowship) training or going directly into practice. A significant majority of recent graduates who have chosen the practice option have taken positions as hospitalists, many at prestigious, high acuity institutions such as Christiana Care and Cooper University Hospital. We have had a highly successful history of placing graduates in numerous fellowships.
