Mercyhealth Internal Medicine Residency Program

The Mercyhealth Internal Medicine Residency Program is a three-year, ACGME-accredited, categorical residency program located in Rockford, Illinois. Our program will continue to grow over the next three years as we build our PGY 1, PGY 2, and PGY 3 class of residents. Each post-graduate class will have 13 residents, totaling 39 students by July 2021.

Residents are given a robust academic conference and didactic schedule that includes a daily sub-specialty-focused conference and an academic half-day focusing on quality, patient safety, primary care, and research. Residents will also participate in hands-on training in our state-of-the-art simulation lab. Traditional academic offerings such as Journal Club are also included. For a full list of offerings click here.

Our faculty consists of dedicated, life-long learners and leaders of medicine. A faculty advisor will be assigned to each resident to offer support and mentorship throughout the program. Residents will graduate with an intrinsic thirst for knowledge and skills that support continuous growth and development for a lifetime. The outcomes of this will create a positive, lasting impact on the delivery of care to our patients and Rockford community.

Residents will also collaborate with faculty on scholarly activity and research initiatives. Mercyhealth Internal Medicine Residency Program research initiatives are supported by a research coordinator, access to a wealth of library resources, and data analysis tools.

Our goal is to create a positive, lasting impact on the delivery of care to our patients and the Rockford community. The Mercyhealth Internal Medicine Residency Program is affiliated with the University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford.
