Internal Medicine Residency Program
Welcome from the Director
Tanganyika Barnes, DO, FACP
Residency Program Director
Welcome to the Englewood Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program webpage. We are so happy you chose to stop by and learn more about our program. Our mission is to train our residents to provide compassionate, evidence-based, patient-centered and equitable care to all patients and inspire them to be future leaders in our rapidly changing healthcare environment. We strive to provide our residents an atmosphere that fosters innovation, scholarship, cultural diversity and a personal commitment to excellence.
At the forefront of any hospital’s success should be the delivery of top-notch care to the patients it serves. In addition to this, as a residency program, we measure our success by the achievements and well-being of our trainees. Here at Englewood, we take pride in knowing that our residents are provided balanced autonomy and supervision, mentorship, career counseling and familial atmosphere to grow and thrive.
With many of our residents being far away from their families and social networks, it’s very important for them to have listening ears, shoulders to cry on, and a cheering squad to celebrate attained goals—we are just that! Our committed faculty are dedicated to helping each of our residents identify and celebrate their strengths and assess their areas for improvement all with the goal of aiding them to reach their fullest potential.
We pride ourselves with maintaining open doors and listening to feedback from our residents so that we can implement changes that will continue to meet their needs while supporting the mission of our program. Our program’s success is a direct reflection of the dedication of our faculty, but most importantly because of our hard-working residents.
