Doximity Ranks UCSF Internal Medicine Residency #2 in the Country

We are excited to announce that UCSF’s Internal Medicine Residency Program has been ranked #2 in the nation by Doximity, the online professional networking platform for healthcare professionals (see the top 20 programs below). This recognition, determined by surveyed physicians, is a testament to the quality of the clinical education we provide along with the outstanding and varied research opportunities available to our residents. Our alumni are recognized as stellar clinicians, and many go on to become leaders in virtually every niche within internal medicine.  

Our residency is distinguished by the breadth and depth of training provided by our three-hospital system and the dedication of faculty teaching and mentoring our residents. Individualized Pathways to Discovery offer an academic launching pad for a wide range of interests including molecular medicine, health equity, medical education, global health, clinical research, or health leadership. Our deeply held values of public service and social justice, along with our commitment to clinical excellence, education, and scholarly activity, attract extraordinarily high quality and diverse trainees.  

Yet we continue our efforts to make our residency even better. Changes include our firm lead system to boost individual mentorship in the program, ongoing work in DEI, and a focus on improving the quality and quantity of feedback within the program. In addition, with support from DOM, we have increased community events including in-person conferences and fun extracurricular activities to reinvigorate our educational culture and community post-pandemic.

We owe the strength of our residency to the outstanding faculty and residents who make UCSF such a special place to train. Thank you for making UCSF a top residency program in the nation.
