Residency Program

Roberto Colon, M.D.The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine welcomes you to join us for your life-long journey of discovery. The Wright State Internal Medicine Residency is a unique university training program providing diverse clinical experiences at multiple institutions. Our residents care for patients at the Miami Valley Hospital — an 865-bed academic medical center, the Dayton VA Medical Center and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Medical Center.  Our patients include community residents and the underserved, as well as populations of active duty military and veterans.  Our program prepares residents for future practice in any clinical setting. From rural medicine, to global practice abroad, to subspecialty care, to academic medicine, past graduates have pursued a wide range of career paths after completion of our training program.

The residency program is part of the Boonshoft School of Medicine, a community-based medical school nationally recognized for its commitment to the social mission of medical education. Like our patients, our core faculty is comprised of a diverse group of clinical-educators who provide high quality medical education in both the hospital and ambulatory settings.

Our extensive compliment of fellowship programs adds to the educational milieu. Resident research is well supported, and we offer a research track for highly motivated residents.

The faculty and I invite you to explore the outstanding features of the Wright State Internal Medicine Residency Program in Dayton, Ohio. We look forward to your visit.
