John Stroger Hospital (the new Cook County Hospital) is part of the Cook County Bureau of Health Services, the largest component of the safety net for health care in Chicago and suburban Cook County. ….moreOur historic training program continues to lead the way in education and indigent care. Our goal is to help develop outstanding clinical skills in inpatient and outpatient medicine. This prepares our graduates for continued fellowship training or careers as hospitalists/primary care internists.
Our residents acquire the fundamental skills for both subspecialty fellowship training and practice in general internal medicine through evidenced-based lectures, bedside teaching, and hands-on experience caring for patients with a wide spectrum of illnesses. In addition, some of the residents choose to participate in research during their second and third years of training.
Almost all the training is on-site at the John H. Stroger Hospital, which opened in December, 2002. We are located in Chicago, and the call schedule leaves plenty of time to explore and enjoy our wonderful city.
