Internal Medicine Residency

About The Program

Adena Health System’s Internal Medicine Residency Program strives to produce high-quality internists who are well-prepared to enter the medical community.  Founded in 2013, our three-year comprehensive program has achieved ACGME “Continued Accreditation” status and is supported by committed faculty members, a robust didactic curriculum, and modern training facilities on a beautiful campus.   

Adena Regional Medical Center, the program’s primary clinical site, is a 261-bed facility with a 12-bed intensive care unit located on Adena Health System’s main campus in Chillicothe, a rural community in Southern Ohio.  The health system provides an array of services and specialties to the more than 400,000 people with diverse backgrounds and cultures who call this region home, resulting in a broad experience in medical disease for the resident.  

Our program utilizes a multi-faceted, integrated approach to the post-graduate training of the internist.  Residents receive direct, hands-on experience with a high volume of diverse pathologies as well as ample exposure to core competency content areas.  A hospital-based faculty, in association with attending physicians, maintains a scientifically-based, clinically-oriented, and humanistic medical service.  Teaching services within the program ensure the resident receives a proper, educationally-sound caseload with graduated levels of responsibility.  Daily teaching rounds are supplemented by a didactic curriculum comprised of key, board-relevant topics and specialty conferences.  Throughout the training period, continuity clinic (one half-day each week) provides a longitudinal experience for continuous management of chronic disease in the ambulatory setting.
