We are pleased to have your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Anne Arundel Medical Center. In this short letter, we hope to share our vision for the program and demonstrate why training in Annapolis will provide a long-lasting platform for your career success and personal development.
We have started a new medicine residency program because we practice in a sophisticated medical center with a well-earned reputation for high patient satisfaction and high quality. The men and women of the Department of Medicine have a lot to offer young physicians and feel a responsibility to do our part in shaping the future of medicine through training the next generations of physicians.
This medical center — part of an accomplished, vibrant and growing medical system — remains deeply rooted in the community and was established from a donated farmhouse nearly 120 years ago. Residents will experience and feel that community connection every day as they interact with patients and family members who live nearby and regard our teams as their trusted guide for their wellness and medical care.
We have developed an extensive curriculum with emphasis on academics, research and evidence-based, high-value direct patient care. But, because no one practices medicine in isolation from society’s ills, we will learn about the ways in which medical outcomes are affected by societal conditions.
We will guide you toward higher precepts of professionalism, which is more than mere competence, knowledge and skill, but also a code of behavior and standards of conduct that will govern how your colleagues and patients view you for the rest of your career.
Through intra-mural resources, and our academic affiliations with George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and University of Maryland School of Medicine, you will enjoy interacting with medical students and have opportunities to rotate at nearby academic medical centers.
You will have the opportunity to learn research concepts and the science of performance improvement both here and with our academic partners.
New resident graduates can expect to experience rapid and substantial changes in the clinical science and in healthcare delivery models. You will want to train with a group of leaders who understand that and prepares its residents for that novel future.
We are committed to providing young physicians with the tools and training that will ensure long-term success and personal fulfillment.
With best wishes for your future success,
