The CMC Internal Medicine Residency Program at Carolinas Medical Center has a rich history dating back to 1968. Our program serves Charlotte and Mecklenburg County as well as the surrounding referring counties, often locally termed the "Metrolina Region." Our referral base consists of approximately 1.5 to 2 million people and includes western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina. This provides our residents exposure to an exceptionally diverse and complex clinical case mix.

Our department is strongly committed to resident education. We have an excellent ABIM Board Pass rate and an outstanding track record for the fellowship match.
