Recruitment is underway – thank you all for participating in helping us recruit our next group of interns!  We appreciate all the effort and time you put into making our program amazing.

This year, our graduating class had a board pass rate of 96%.  We’re so proud of them!

This week, there will be a CLER (Clinical Learning Environment Review) institutional site visit from the ACGME.  There will be site visitors walking around our hospital who may talk with you a little more about the hospital.

Happy birthday to these November babies!

ACP was this past weekend in Marina Del Rey and we are so proud of all our residents who presented a poster.  Congratulations to our winners – Sati Patel (3rd place in Clinical Vignette), Daniel Kaplan (2nd place in Clinical Vignette), Alexis Gordon (1st place in Innovation), and our medical jeopardy team, Praveen Belur, Kevin Do, and Ju Suh, for 2nd place!

Our newly remodeled Continuity Clinic move-in date will be October 2, 2017.  Please remember that you should go to the 4P OPD area for your primary care clinic assignments and not the 2P clinic.

Finally, our new USC Internal Medicine Residency website is now live!  You can access it through
