SSM St. Mary's Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program Core Faculty
Internal Medicine | MO-SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - St. Louis | Saint Louis, MO | Req #: R142311

SSM Health St Mary's Hospital's Internal Medicine Residency Training Program seeks an additional core faculty member. Our program offers ten categorical first postgraduate year (PGY-1) positions in its university-affiliated, but independently-approved program.

Our residency program was accredited with commendation for ten years by the Accreditation Council for GME and participates in the National Residency Matching Program. Our program offers structured, university-style training that includes third and fourth-year medical students and full-time faculty.

We are a primary care-oriented training program designed for physicians preparing for a career in outpatient general internal medicine. As of 2019, our three year rolling ABIM pass rate was approximately 90 percent.

In addition to the traditional curriculum, our residents learn real-world requirements of today's changing practice environment. They are exposed to the basics of quality improvement, patient safety, peer review, high value care and ethical, shared decision making.

SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - St. Louis has served as a teaching hospital of the St Louis University School of Medicine since 1964. In addition to our independent Internal Medicine Residency program, St Mary's is the primary training site for St Louis University Obstetrics and Gynecology and Family Medicine Residency Programs. St Louis University Gastroenterology fellows and Orthopedic residents spend considerable time on rotations at SSM Health St. Mary's.

Our outpatient internal medicine continuity clinic is an integral part of the training we offer. Residents spend time each week in this outpatient clinic, where they will follow a panel of patients throughout the course of their training. There they work under direct supervision of a dedicated clinic faculty member, along with a multidisciplinary team of nurses, social workers, clinical pharmacists and office staff. The resident serves as the primary care physician for their panel of patients and obtains training in the management of acute and chronic outpatient problems as well as documentation, coding and communication in the ambulatory setting.

Our residents also function as the resident PCP each month in subspecialty clinics, working alongside specialists from various fields.

As part of their ambulatory curriculum, residents are involved in research projects and practice improvement modules sponsored by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Resident champions lead their peer group in these important research and QI initiatives focused on fostering lifelong learning.

Quality of Life

Missouri - Eastern

From the famed Gateway Arch in St. Louis to Kansas City, Missouri is one of the most livable states in the country. The metropolitan area features a large variety of neighborhoods and communities. With an affordable housing market, trendy neighborhoods, and the booming economic landscape this one of the most attractive areas for professionals. Smaller cities like Jefferson City, our capital, and Columbia, home of the University of Missouri, offer vibrant communities buzzing with activity, yet free of the hustle and bustle of larger metropolitan areas.


“This past year has further demonstrated the important and influential role that health care systems can and should play in shaping local communities and society at large,” Joe Hodges, Regional President, SSM Health in Oklahoma. “SSM Health is proud to join this pledge and will continue taking bold steps to ensure better health for all – particularly those who are economically, physically and socially marginalized.”

Collectively, SSM Health and the other Catholic health organizations that have signed the pledge employ nearly a half million people across 46 states and the District of Columbia, and care for almost four million patients annually.

Recognizing that racism is an affront to the core values of Catholic social teaching, CHA members joined in solidarity to promote the common good and seek justice by being actively anti-racist and accountable in effecting positive change in the communities we serve.

Four focus areas

Act for COVID-19 equity: Members commit to ensuring that testing for COVID-19 is available and accessible in minority communities and that new treatments are distributed and used equitably as they become available. Members will also work for prioritization of vaccinations for those individuals and families at higher risk — elder populations and communities of color, including Native American communities.

Enact change across our own health systems: Members are examining how their organizations recruit, hire, promote and retain employees; how they conduct business operations, including visible diversity and inclusivity at the decision, leadership and governance levels; and how they incentivize and hold our leaders accountable.

Advocate for improved health outcomes for minority communities and populations: Members agree to promote and improve the delivery of culturally competent care and oppose policies that exacerbate or perpetuate economic and social inequities, including such issues as education, housing and criminal justice reform.

Strengthen trust with minority communities: Members will continue to foster, strengthen and sustain authentic relationships based on mutually agreed goals to better understand the unique needs of their communities.

Kaiser and other Catholic health care leaders who have signed the pledge recognize that collectively they are in a unique position to bring about overdue change to policies and practices that have allowed systemic racism and health disparities to continue in the United States.

To hold itself and its members accountable, CHA intends to provide updates on the commitment progress annually.
