“It is with great privilege and pleasure that I will be completing my training at the University of Maryland Midtown Campus. Working with a wonderful group of people, including residents, faculty, and hospital staff, on a daily basis in both the inpatient and outpatient settings has been rewarding. Having the opportunity to serve a diverse patient population with a wide variety of pathological conditions has been the best part of my experience here. We are exposed to rare disease states as well as unusual presentations of common conditions.
The program has a comprehensive curriculum that deals with all aspects of internal medicine. Furthermore, subspecialties are covered with a balance between outstanding clinical training and work life balance. For me, the ICU rotation and the morning didactics have been the most valuable educational experiences.
The program's administration is very supportive and the attending physicians are approachable, willing, and able to teach. It is exciting to be a part of a team where everyone works together to learn and provide the best possible care for the greater good of our patients. Without hesitation I can say that the University of Maryland Midtown Campus is one of the best community training programs in the area.”

"The University of Maryland Medical Center – Midtown Campus allows for all the benefits of a large medical system yet provides the rewarding and personal setting of a community hospital. The clinical exposure of urban medicine has allowed ample opportunities for hands-on teaching in various specialties from Emergency Medicine to Critical Care and has been invaluable to my growth as a physician.
The Faculty and staff are approachable, eager to teach and provide just the right balance of autonomy and oversight to encourage progression and confidence in young physicians."

“UMMC Midtown Campus is a perfect place for an internship, as the training offers a balance between academic work, bedside teaching, and personal life. One clear advantage of a small community program is the amount of attention an individual resident gets throughout the training experience.
Hospitalists and the sub-specialty attendings are easy to approach and very comfortable to work with. With a batch of 20 interns, you will make 19 friends as soon as your year starts. Our program director will make sure both our stomachs and brains are satisfied during Morning Reports and Noon Conferences, with a dash of hot sauce on the side. I feel confident that I will be well prepared to enter residency training in my chosen field of neurology.”

“Residency after medical school had always been a lifelong dream and achieving this at UMMC Midtown Campus is a dream comes true. UMMC Midtown Campus Internal Medicine is a truly unique program with a diverse group of residents and attendings ever ready and willing to guide you to be the best that you can be. Academics and patient interactions are top- notch. I will say that being here is bringing the best in me and I am sure 2 years from now, I will have reached for the stars and brought them down to earth.
UMMC Midtown Campus is located in Baltimore City, a vibrant and colorful city. Baltimore has a lot of old history including the famous Mt. Vernon, former residence of George Washington (first American President), plenty of really good restaurants. It is also home to the best crab cakes in the United States. If you love classical music, look no further than the nearby Peabody Institute, where you can catch some free live performances. These are just but a few things one can do in Baltimore outside residency at UMMC Midtown.”
