Portsmouth Regional Hospital is committed to the creation of a new internal medicine residency program that will provide our residents with the clinical experience and supportive mentoring that will lead to a successful career as an internal medicine specialist. Our program is designed to reflect the changing environment that future practitioners will face. The program acknowledges that our graduates may choose to pursue a variety of career paths—additional sub-specialty training, hospital-based internal medicine, office-based primary care internal medicine, or a combination of these.
Portsmouth Regional Hospital is a 220-bed hospital that has a level of acuity usually seen only in much larger facilities. It serves as a referral center for cardiology, trauma and critical care services. The daily census of hospital patients guarantees our residents broad and varied inpatient clinical exposures. The outpatient practice is based out of a mature internal medicine practice, which allows residents to experience a wide variety of outpatient clinical situations across a spectrum of cultures, genders and socio-economic status. The ambulatory experience will also expose residents to medicine and surgical specialists to provide a well-rounded outpatient clinical exposure.
Portsmouth Regional Hospital is an affiliate member of the Tufts University School of Medicine, which has a focus on primary care and rural medicine.
