This is an extraordinary time in your life, a transition that marks the beginning of a crucial new period in your professional career and in your personal experience.
We believe that you stand at the beginning of one of the most exciting times in the history of medicine. After decades of research in human disease we have begun to see a novel array of new therapies that will rapidly expand in the near future. The Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa has contributed in countless ways to this new world of discovery, remedy, and hope. Our goal is to ensure that we remain in the forefront not just of change but of important science, meaningful education, and the best patient care available anywhere -- all of this in a stimulating environment of cultural and intellectual diversity.
We are fully committed to our residency program and to its continued position as one of the premier programs in the nation. We have created a training curriculum and a learning environment that thoroughly prepares you for the next level in your career. At the same time we are committed to helping you learn how to preserve a meaningful balance between work and home, a skill that will shape every part of your life.
We are a team here at Iowa. We foresee and strive to provide growth and unlimited opportunities in internal medicine at Iowa and urge you to join us in Iowa City.
