Internal Medicine Residency Program

Desert Care Network has introduced a physician residency in internal medicine that is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association. Learn more about this residency, or call (800) 491-4990.

The Department of Internal Medicine participates exclusively with the American Osteopathic Association National Matching Service and can be found on the Electronic Residency Application Service. You may apply through the dean’s office at your medical school, or through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates.
