Internal Medicine Residency Training Program
The Harbor-UCLA Internal Medicine Program is dedicated to living the hospital mission to “put patients first and provide exceptional patient-centered care with the compassion and respect we would want for our loved ones, regardless of ability to pay.” The program centers on our commitment to serve our diverse patient population, dedication to education and passion for each other.
We are committed to serving the diverse patient population within the South Bay. Our population demographics consists of:
30% African American
We provide cutting edge evidence-based care to all our patients at Harbor-UCLA. We have dedicated UCLA-appointed faculty that are committed to training clinically strong physicians and future leaders in the medical field. Our faculty not only train residents, but also support them in their scholarly activities through research projects within the Department. The Harbor “family” is built upon the foundations of service and education, but nurtured on the bonds of mentorship, friendship and collegiality. We welcome all young physicians who want to participate in our mission and join our family!
We are very proud to be a public hospital. Public hospitals have a rich and proud tradition of linking patient care for the underserved, outstanding residency training programs and academic and research productivity. We are one of the major teaching hospitals of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and are affiliated with the successful, well-regarded LA Biomedical Research Institute on campus.
For over 60 years, it has been a “Harbor tradition” that our trainees develop their clinical skills and medical knowledge with a healthy balance of independence and supervision. As our resident, you will be challenged to use your initiative and clinical judgment, with our experienced faculty giving a judicious amount of teaching and supervision. After all, that’s why you are here – to master internal medicine.
Harbor-UCLA’s Department of Medicine faculty, researchers, and trainees are closely involved in biomedical research. Federal, non-profit, and industry research grants support molecular and cell biology, animal research, and clinical and epidemiological studies. Specialized research centers focus on cancer epidemiology, coronary artery disease, infectious diseases, pulmonary hypertension, COPD, and much more. Basic science and clinical research is built into our history and our current mission.
You will get outstanding internal medicine training at Harbor-UCLA. Our residents develop a camaraderie that comes from the opportunity to make a difference for our patients and their families. We hope that you will strongly consider Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for the next phase of your medical career in internal medicine.
