A Message from Dr. Christou
Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Mercy Hospital, the first and oldest hospital in Chicago. Mercy combines the advanced capabilities of a major urban medical center with the humanistic focus of a community based hospital. Residents are exposed to a diverse and challenging patient care setting, a well-rounded academic program and a highly qualified teaching faculty. Faculty physicians have appointments at the University of Illinois at Chicago as well as University of Chicago.
We are proud of Mercy’s longstanding commitment to medical education. We are equally proud of the success of our graduates, who include physicians in the practice of General Internal Medicine as well as subspecialties, and many who have assumed faculty positions in medical institutions across the country.
We invite you to consider the important ways that the Mercy environment, residency program and faculty will contribute to this crucial phase of your medical career.
Ted Christou, M.D.
