Internal Medicine Residency Program

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to our website where you can explore our curriculum, resources, and other information about our Internal Medicine Residency Program at Coliseum Medical Center. We are committed to providing you with an excellent and safe clinical learning environment created by our knowledgeable and compassionate faculty. The foundation of our program is providing you quality clinical training that emphasizes clinical excellence, teamwork, leadership, and career development. Residents are immersed in a broad range of pathology that prepares them well for careers in hospital medicine, primary care, or fellowship training.

During the three years of your residency, you will have robust clinical exposure to both inpatient and outpatient medicine and gain expertise in office, hospital, emergency settings. You will have a great degree of autonomy in overseeing patient care as you grow in your competence, be in a program where residents are treated with respect and responsive to their needs, and listen to their ideas for improvements. Additionally, pharmacists and other healthcare providers round with our physician teams in interdisciplinary rounds providing real time feedback to patients and physicians alike on issues such as drug-drug interactions, cost of medications, discharge planning, etc.

The program offers a dynamic and exciting didactic curriculum that includes: clinical case conferences from specialists, QI and safety conferences, content from evidence based medicine, cost conscious care, board review sessions, hands-on simulation sessions, journal clubs, and the fundamentals of business of medicine. The research director and coordinator help facilitates residents on creating robust research, publications, and presentations. Our residents are encouraged and supported to engage in scholarly work, ranging from local and regional presentations, to attending national conferences, to publishing scientific manuscripts.

Early establishment of mentors is encouraged and facilitated by the design of our training program. We begin linking you with mentors during your 2nd month and based on career interests, interns are linked to faculty that can provide further advice and guide the intern throughout their training. Faculty mentors appreciate that time is allotted within the residency for research, quality improvement, and/or educational scholarship and are eager to help.

We are affiliated with Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM), providing access to library resources, research support, and the opportunity to work with medical students to sharpen your teaching skills and being a mentor.

We hope you will consider us for training and I look forward to meeting you and sharing the opportunities we have to offer with you as you explore the next phase of your medical training.

Sincerely,
Amjid Nawaz, MD
Program Director
