A Word from Nidip Patel, Internal Medicine Residency Program Director

Dear Prospective Resident,

Choosing a residency program is a major decision. As you look to find your future training program, we encourage you to consider the location in which you will live, the people with who you will be working, and the clinical learning environment in which you will train. 

The Northside Hospital Gwinnett (NHG) Internal Medicine Residency Program is housed in one of the largest hospital systems in metro Atlanta. Our program aims to train highly engaged, empathic, curious, socially-minded leaders in a supportive yet academically rigorous environment.

Our graduates are well rounded in general internal medicine (GIM), and are thoroughly prepared to practice GIM or progress to further fellowship training to meet their personal career goals.

We welcome you to explore our innovative curriculum, meet our supportive faculty and diverse house staff, and to get to know the Metro Atlanta area.
