An Internal Medicine (IM) Residency provides a program of graduate medical education encompassing the study and practice of health promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis, care, and treatment of men and women from adolescence to old age during health and all stages of illness. This training program stresses scientific knowledge, problem solving, evidence-based decision making, a commitment to lifelong learning, and an attitude of compassion and empathy.

The Womack IM program and institution educates residents and faculty members on the professional responsibilities of physicians to appear for duty appropriately rested and fit to provide services required by their patients. The IM program is committed to promoting patient safety and resident well-being in a supportive educational environment.

The MODS system is used for selection of residents into the Internal Medicine program. Results from this military match are distributed at the Army Graduate Medical Education Selection Board which is typically held the week after Thanksgiving each year. In early November, the Internal Medicine program reviews the MODS files of applicants to the IM Program and places them on an Order of Merit List (OML) based on their performance as outlined in the MODS file.
The application deadline for residency is September 15th. Prospective residents will complete the application online using the MODS website. In addition, applicants will need to include a number of items with their application packet. These supplemental items are due by October 15th. These items include: medical school transcript, step 1 and 2 results, height and weight and APFT verification, and Dean’s letter.
