Message from the Program Director

Michael Aronica, MD.

“We provide you with a beneficial balance of educational curriculum and clinical experience,” says Michael J. Aronica, program director.

Our residency training has the advantages of a well-established primary care curriculum, diverse faculty, multiple combined internal medicine-pediatric practice sites and recognition of quality in the community.

Our program was established in 1981 in response to the growing interest of medical students for a graduate training program that provided a greater depth of knowledge and exposure to the medical care of individuals of all ages than was offered in a standard family practice residency program.

We choose four outstanding residents per year and make each an integral part of our care team. 

We will build your clinical expertise from year one, when you will be the principal provider of continuity of care to your patients.

As you learn best practices from our internal medicine and pediatrics experts, you will care for diverse patients with an array of conditions, providing you with ample time to focus on clinical knowledge, skills and experiences.

Our four-year program meets all the guidelines of both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics.

Upon the successful completion of our program, you will be eligible to sit for the board examinations in both internal medicine and pediatrics leading to board certification in both fields.

The favorable faculty ratio in our division creates a nurturing, accessible learning environment. During your training you’ll work with faculty members who are committed to developing your expertise in treating adults and children. 

Our clinical rotations provide a broader patient care experience than you’d encounter in many residencies. Training in our system of affiliated clinical sites, you’ll work in urban hospitals, a world-class cancer research center and a specialty facility for veterans.

We strive to provide you with a beneficial balance of educational curriculumclinical trainingresearch opportunities and teaching experience.
