University of Iowa-Des Moines Internal Medicine Residency Program


Message from Internal Medicine Residency Program Director 

Greetings and welcome!  The University of Iowa – Des Moines Internal Medicine Residency Program is a community-based university-affiliated program with greater than 40 years of experience in training residents in the science and art of Internal Medicine.  We foster academic rigor in a supportive, innovative, and collaborative learning and working environment.  As a result, our residents develop broad-ranging skills that allow the pursuit of careers in locations throughout the United States, ranging from general Internal Medicine practice to subspecialty practice.

We offer ten categorical and two preliminary medicine positions each year.  With training sites that have a spectrum of patient care experiences from primary to tertiary care, and a program size that allows for significant schedule customization, we are able to offer primary care, hospital medicine, and subspecialty medicine training tracks to help residents achieve their career goals.  Historically, one-third of our residents choose to enter into subspecialty fellowship training, frequently obtaining positions in competitive specialties and at nationally recognized programs.

Our faculty consists of outstanding general Internists and subspecialists actively involved in one-on-one teaching and mentoring.  Our residents also play a major role in education, mastering abilities necessary to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and growth of the knowledge and skills of students, residents, and faculty.

I trust that you will find the information on our site helpful.  Please call, write, or email our office for more information.  We look forward to helping you learn more about what our program has to offer.
