The Southwest Indiana Internal Medicine Residency program is uniquely designed in collaboration with two partner hospitals, Ascension St. Vincent Evansville and Good Samaritan Vincennes. With both hospitals having a focus on primary care, they compliment one another well. The patient population for Evansville and Vincennes is both ethnically and socioeconomically varied, with a small primary care provider base and even small general Internal Medicine capacity, which currently limits access to care. These factors ensure there will is a large, medically and socioeconomically varied patient base for residents assigned to the resident-faculty practice.
Both facilities have active affiliations with numerous smaller organizations that deliver care to rural patients, offering a depth and breadth of clinical experience with a diverse population of patients.
