Welcome to Florida Atlantic University's Schmidt College of Medicine! This residency program is here for our residents.  Our mission is to give you the education and experiences that will help develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes you need to be a well-rounded, thoughtful, empathetic physician who is board-certified in internal medicine and embraces life-long learning.  We strive to be a supportive learning environment that allows progressive autonomy and fosters the development of leadership skills that you will take with you as you progress in your career, whether that be community based or academic medicine.

Our University-based program is located in South Florida's beautiful beachfront Palm Beach County. You’ll care for patients at three community hospitals which provides you a strong clinical experience with a varied patient population including a large geriatric population. Our program follows a 4+1 schedule to ensure an excellent continuity clinic experience in one of our two resident clinics. Simulation training begins during intern year and continues throughout all three years of training, including a point-of-care-ultrasound curriculum with our intensivists and other faculty. Academics are a focal point of our program with a dedicated academic half day, ambulatory half day including didactics and journal club, case-based morning report, critical care journal club, and humanities sessions.

Our varied and caring faculty are ready to help you reach your career goals, whether it is primary care, subspecialty training, or hospitalist medicine in a community medicine or in academic medicine. Our faculty, staff, and residents will quickly welcome you into our residency family to support you on your journey and help you be successful.  Ultimately, we succeed when you succeed.

Thank you for your interest in our program! We hope you will join our FAUmily.
