Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Tufts Medical Center. Our institution, the major teaching hospital for Tufts University School of Medicine, has a long storied history. Founded in 1796 as the Boston Dispensary with some of its original benefactors including people like Paul Revere and Sam Adams, it was the first permanent medical facility in New England and one of the oldest in the country. Part of its original mission was to guarantee that the poor people of Boston had access to high quality medical care.
That goal remains intact today. Over the past two centuries, numerous developments in health care delivery as well as advances in biomedical research have been based at what is now called Tufts Medical Center. The institution continues to be dedicated to its mission of maintaining its tradition of health care innovation, leadership, education, charity and high quality care and service to its patient population.
Likewise, the Department of Medicine at Tufts Medical Center and its residency training have a long storied tradition. Some of the highlights of the program, which recently received the maximal 5 year accreditation cycle, include:
