Jefferson Abington Hospital (JAH) has a long and rich tradition of postgraduate training in internal medicine. We excel in our ability to provide a comprehensive, rigorous training experience while also maintaining a personal concern for each resident and his or her professional interests. The residency offers a scholarly and effective approach to the provision of inpatient and outpatient adult medical care for twenty residents in each year of the three-year categorical program and eight in the one year preliminary internal medicine residency program.
The key elements of Abington's successful internal medicine program are the broad range of clinical problems, the well-prepared and dedicated medical staff and the progressive increments in patient management responsibility delegated to the house staff. The objective of the internal medicine program at Abington is to provide quality training which will lead to a rewarding career as a general internist certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and, for those who choose, further training in a medical subspecialty. Finally, Abington has close relationships with many of Philadelphia's academic medical centers. As a result, the residents are exposed to a wide array of very talented faculty physicians, many of whom are experts in their field.
