Program Description

The Internal Medicine training program at William Beaumont Army Medical Center is one of the best kept secrets in Army Medicine. We can promise you a great education because we have a lot to offer: a wide breadth of pathology, ample volume, hands-on procedural training, diversity of patients and staff, and a cohesive community of residents and teaching faculty. 

Our accredited program is especially unique in that we are a blended Military and Veterans Affairs (VA) civilian training program.   We accept, on average, three civilian VA-sponsored interns per year.  These VA residents must be U.S. citizens but incur no obligation to the military nor to the VA.  This rare partnership with the El Paso VA health care system expands our team of invested teaching faculty and provides a wide breadth of complex and interesting patient pathology.  It also offers an ideal solution for dual physician couples in which one trainee is active-duty and the other is not.

Some examples of the numerous educational resources available to you at WBAMC include: a simulation center which is located within the hospital and available for use by trainees and educators at all hours; collaborative partnerships with local medical centers; point-of-care ultrasound training; and daily didactic conferences with a mixture of case-based learning, EBM education, and board preparation. 

Residents will train in a supportive, collegial environment with easy access to general medicine and sub-specialty staff. The small size of our hospital allows for hands-on procedural experiences without the added challenge of competing fellows or other primary care trainees. Our academic curriculum is anchored by a strong core of skilled teaching faculty who are enthusiastic about medical education. By the end of their training, WBAMC residents are ready for independent practice with a skillset rooted in patient ownership, critical thinking, and evidence-based management.

The city of El Paso provides a perfect opportunity for work-life integration. We have fantastic weather, affordable housing, numerous outdoor and cultural activities, and a low crime rate (consistently in the top ten safest large cities in the US).  Multiple national parks and forests are also an easy daytrip away!
