We continue to grow!
The Geisinger Internal Medicine Residency Program was started back in 1955 with only one resident! We are a dually-accredited (ACGME and AOA) three-year program that has grown exponentially since its inception, now comprising 51 residents total, with 17 residents per year. In addition to our residency’s growth, we have been expanding our subspecialty fellowship programs as well, currently offering cardiology, critical care medicine (CCM), pulmonary/CCM, gastroenterology, nephrology, rheumatology, hospice and palliative medicine, clinical informatics, GI/nutrition, sports medicine and (new in 2019) hematology/oncology. In addition, advanced fellowships in interventional cardiology and advanced endoscopy are also available.
