Graduate Medical Education
Established in 1852, Mercy Hospital enjoys a long, rich history and the proud distinction of Chicago's first hospital. Since its chartering, Mercy has served as a teaching hospital and pioneer in medicine and medical education. In 1859, Mercy became the first teaching hospital in the United States where a graded curriculum was used. In 1869, Mercy's Chief Surgeon Dr. Edmond Andrews introduced antiseptic surgery techniques to Chicago and more recently medical pioneer Dr. Paul A. Jones performed the first FDA approved Carotid Artery Stenting Procedure.

In addition to the residency programs below, Mercy also enjoys a long-standing and respected affiliation with the University of Illinois, offering independent surgical and emergency medicine residency programs, as well as an integrated radiology residency program.  Both sponsored and affiliated residents draw on the skills, knowledge, and experience of our diverse, accomplished and dedicated medical staff at Mercy. We are well-known for our welcoming culture that facilitates excellence and provides the support which enables each resident to achieve their education and life goals.
