Internal Medicine Residency Program Alumni

Where do our residents end up after graduation?

One of our great sources of pride is that nearly 25% or our graduates either never leave Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) or pursue a fellowship and ultimately return to practice at LVHN. We believe this speaks to an unparalleled culture of collaboration between faculty and our learners. It also speaks to a strong learning environment where our guiding principle is to train you with the intent of calling you a colleague someday.

Over the past five years nearly 75% of our graduates have gone on to pursue fellowship training both at our LVHN opportunities and beyond. Please see fellowship links below. We have also posted our most recent data on our graduating classes’ job and fellowship pursuits below:
