Residency in Internal Medicine (REM)

Over the past few decades, the life expectancy of Mexicans has increased considerably and, accordingly, chronic-degenerative health issues are also on the rise, including diabetes, hypertension, hepatic diseases and cancer, among many others that form part of the field of Internal Medicine and its related subspecialties. At the same time, globalization, advancements in knowledge of biology, genomics and proteomics, the development of new information and communication technologies and systems, social networks, changes in epidemiology, advancements in therapeutics and the growing cost of health services could signify a radical change in the way diseases are addressed in this generation. Today more than ever before, Internal Physicians? practice must be based on science and evidence. They will undoubtedly focus on preventive and ambulatory medicine, maintaining their position in intra-hospital medicine as the health-team leader and mentoring doctors who want to study a subspecialty related to internal medicine. Tecnológico de Monterrey?s educational process is centered on the acquisition of knowledge and development of the skills, attitudes and values that will enable students to grow as individuals, committed to their community and acting as agents of change to improve it in the area of their specialty, and to keep up-to-date in a changing environment. The curricular content and competencies are developed by the students throughout the four-year program, incorporating during this period the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required of a good internist. Clinical activities are executed in both public (Hospital Metropolitano) and private (Hospital San José de Monterrey and Centro Médico Zambrano Hellion) settings, thus offering a wide-ranging panorama of Medicine in our region and providing opportunities for national and/or international rotations to extend this panorama.
