Internal Medicine Residents


We have designed a curriculum that will prepare doctors to practice in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.  This curriculum, designed around the ACGME Core Competencies, has a large number of electives.  This has been done to allow a resident extra experience in the inpatient, outpatient, or specialty area where they intend to focus their career.

If you are interested in a community based internal medicine residency program, I would certainly encourage you to check out CHI in Hot Springs.  Not only is our hospital a great place to learn and practice medicine, but our community has many unique things to offer including 3 beautiful lakes, the Ouachita mountains, Oaklawn horse racing and casino, excellent public schools, downtown art galleries, (I could go on and on).   For information on qualifications and how to apply for a spot in our residency program, please click “Applicants”

Additional Comments from our Residents


"I'm big on family so location and proximity to family was important to me and my choice to come here to CHI St.Vincent for Internal Medicine Residency. There is a good Faculty to Resident Ratio. You can ask as many questions as you desire. The faculty know your name and who you are." 

       -Dr. Luke Grisham, DO, PGY1


"I chose this program because of its location and being the premiere hospital in Southwest Arkansas for access to healthcare and treatment. Our administration is supportive and has our back. It is a new program and we are setting the precedent and assisting in developing the program standards."

          - Dr. Brett Clayton, DO, PGY1 


"My experience at CHI St Vincent Hot Springs has been that the administration, faculty and staff have been supportive from day one. The organization is intentional about diversity and inclusion. Our program provides a conducive learning environment and our faculty are approachable. We have the ability to ask questions during rounds and noon conferences without ridicule and have been given formal and informal feedback on our progress towards both patient care and ABIM prep. Our program director is in the trenches with us and he is an excellent teacher. Both our program director and coordinator have an open door policy and are easy to talk to about any program needs."
