Northeast Georgia Health System provides a unique opportunity for Internal Medicine resident training. Our community-based hospital system serves almost one million people in more than 18 counties across Northeast Georgia.
NGMC Gainesville offers a facility with more than 700 beds and a vast pathology due to our unique patient population. Along with these features, the most significant reason an Internal Medicine resident will succeed with NGMC is because of our system’s strong belief in building a successful Internal Medicine Residency Program.
The support for our new Internal Medicine residency program is evident throughout our facility. From our state-of-the-art call room for residents and the Office of GME to our hospitalist program and subspecialists that help to develop our residency, we’ve created an environment for growth & development. With this solid foundation, concrete operations, and support from the overall health system, our residency boasts a growth-minded, positive atmosphere where all residents can thrive on their path to become exemplary physicians.
Internal Medicine residents at NGMC have the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with experienced faculty who provide care for patients in all areas of internal medicine.
The Internal Medicine Residency schedule will include monthly rotations in various specialties with direct supervision. The rotations are designed to focus on producing internal medicine physicians who are ready to step out into the practicing environment.
Rotations will be performed at:

Internal Medicine Residency years vary in curriculum. At the beginning of residency for PGY-1 residents, all interns will participate in an extended didactic schedule, focusing on professional and clinical skills to provide the foundation for their competency development throughout their residency.
Hands-on activities and directed practice of patient care will be a pivotal component of the IM Residency training. NGMC GME internal medicine faculty will also assist with helping you integrate into the culture of the Northeast Georgia Health System and the Gainesville community.
