The Internal Medicine Residency is a combined program between David Grant USAF Medical Center and University of California, Davis Medical Center. The mission of the DGMC-UC Davis Internal Medicine Residency Program is to prepare our residents for a successful career in Internal Medicine.
We offer a diverse training milieu to prepare our residents for a multitude of career paths such as rural primary care physician, clinician-scientist, hospitalist, academic or community subspecialist, or clinician-educator.
