Internal Medicine Program Director Message

The Internal Medicine Residency Program welcomes your interest in the excellent postgraduate training opportunities at Kettering Medical Center. We sincerely hope that the information found on these web pages will acquaint you with our institution as well as answer many of your questions about our program. After receiving your application through the ERAS system, we may invite you for an interview. Our positions are filled through the NRMP.

Our residency program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The program is grounded in a solid commitment to excellence in patient care, continuing education, and community involvement. Delivering care to people of all walks of life in the Dayton and surrounding areas, Kettering Medical Center provides experienced care with a personal touch. KMC health care divisions serve more than 200,000 patients each year. Kettering Medical Center is part of the worldwide consortium of health care facilities operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Founded in 1964 through generous funding by Eugene W. and Virginia W. Kettering, Kettering Medical Center has become a preeminent health science center in the region. The Kettering philosophy of excellence fosters the combined application of state-of-the-art technology with compassionate, professional care.

The close association with Wright State University School of Medicine is another important strength of the program. Wright State University graduates approximately 100 students each year. The residents in our program participate in the students' education during their third and fourth year.

The residents and teaching faculty have a very close working relationship, one that fosters increasing resident responsibility. This commitment is evident in the formulation and function of the Internal Medicine residency program. Kettering Medical Center is developing innovative outpatient opportunities for the future needs of medicine.

Kettering Medical Center is a community hospital with a university dimension. There are other WSU residency programs at KMC as well, including emergency medicine, family medicine, and general surgery. All programs are affiliated or integrated with Wright State University School of Medicine and all are part of the Dayton Area Graduate Medical Education Consortium (DAGMEC.) Five private and two government hospitals in the Dayton area provide us with a wide variety of opportunities for additional education throughout the city.

The institution's superior diagnostic facilities are another strength of the clinical programs. Our excellent clinical laboratory - with 24-hour coverage for emergency studies - provides highly sophisticated, state-of-the-art testing. The Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Departments provide comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services of the highest caliber, including diagnostic radiology, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology.

There are numerous supporting ancillary services of the medical center. These include a fully computerized laboratory; pharmacy services, including pharmocokinetics, IV placement, and TPN teams; and computerized medical records dictation/transcription service. The medical center has consistently received high marks from the accrediting body, JCAHO; in fact, at the last survey done, KMC received 100% (top 2% of all hospitals in the nation.)

There are many other unique aspects to the Kettering Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. The programs are relatively small, ensuring a high staff/resident ratio with considerable individual attention, and ample opportunities for procedures as well as increasing responsibility.

As you consider all your options for the future, we are confident that IF you take a close look at our programs, you will be extremely pleased with what you find. Don't delay - call us today for more information!
