LGHM’s internship is characterized by a broad range of supervised inpatient and outpatient clinical experiences with a patient population that has a wide spectrum of health concerns.

The training year also provides exposure to core disciplines as well as the specialty. Education is provided in medical/surgical experiences while incorporating formal and informal methodology.

Each rotation has scope, volume and variety to allow trainees to meet standards and program objectives.

Exposure to the support disciplines of pathology, radiology, and didactic anesthesiology occurs directly by rotation, or indirectly by formal conferences and/or exposure while on medical and surgical services.
