The Office of Education

The Education Office is responsible for overseeing the Internal Medicine Residency Programs at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC).

The Department of Medicine started the first in-hospital residency training program in the United States in 1823. Back then there were only two residents in the program, but today more than 140 physicians are pursuing their residencies here.

A complete listing of the residency programs is available by visiting Residency Programs at UMMC.
