Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, which includes Las Palmas Medical Center and Del Sol Medical Center, announced the inauguration of its internal medicine graduate medical education (GME) program. Internal medicine, also known as general medicine, is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases.
“We are thrilled to implement this graduate program that further educates residents in internal medicine and helps prepare them to provide a high level of care to El Pasoans,” Don Karl, chief executive officer of Las Palmas Medical Center, said. “Residents in this GME program will engage in valuable hands-on and preceptor training that will be beneficial throughout their careers as physicians.”
In its press release, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare said it invested in the creation of its internal medicine GME program to bring more physicians with the most up-to-date medical school education to El Paso, and train them to better serve the needs of the growing local community. All residents may be eligible to pursue sub-specialty training in areas such as cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology and other high-demand health areas.
