A Tradition of Excellence; New Frontiers in Graduate Medical Education
Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medical Residency Program
at Easton Hospital.
Easton Hospital has offered a high-quality Medical Residency Program
since the early 1970’s with a strong emphasis on medical education for
residents, medical students, and attending teaching staff. We are fully
accredited by the ACGME with a current three-year accreditation cycle.
Easton Hospital maintains an affiliation with
Drexel University College of Medicine, whereby both Medical
Students rotate to Easton and Medical Residents have the opportunity to
rotate to Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia for elective
In 2001, Easton Hospital became a for-profit hospital owned by Community
Health Systems, one of the largest U.S. healthcare systems consisting of 100+
hospitals in 29 states which is based in Brentwood, Tennessee. Community Health
Systems has expanded our physical facility along with a combination of
professional, educational and technological enhancements providing a
well-rounded education to our residents. We take great pride in delivering
state-of-the-art treatment and the highest possible levels of service to
patients and their families in a welcoming, community-based setting.
We are very proud of our 100% Board Pass rate for the past seven years. Our
graduates have been very successful with the American Board of Internal Medicine
examination. Recent graduates have entered fellowship programs in Infectious
Disease, Geriatrics, and Rheumatology. Others have found Inpatient Hospitalist
positions or Outpatient/Office Practice careers in multiple areas of the United
Internal Medicine Residency Mission Statement
The Easton Hospital Internal Medicine Residency provides a structured program
that includes an educational environment, teaching faculty and clinical
facilities to enable physicians to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes
necessary to begin their careers as practicing general internists or to progress
to fellowship training in a subspecialty of Internal Medicine.
The primary goal of the Easton Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program is
to train fully competent, broadly skilled general internists. Our curriculum
provides each resident with a learning environment. Our workday is structured to
balance patient care responsibilities with adequate time for study and a healthy
lifestyle. We seek to educate in the model of lifelong learning, recognizing
that ever-expanding knowledge and ever-growing scope of diagnostics and
therapeutics requires individual self-renewal.
We offer you well rounded professional experience you will need to practice in
a managed care environment including:
- Uniquely strong balance of primary care and tertiary services;
- Patient diversity in a wide variety of clinical settings;
- Broad patient care responsibility;
- And extensive exposure to a broad range of cases.
