As a division of the Huntington Memorial Hospital internal medicine residency program, The Phil Simon Clinic provides clinical experience and research opportunities in the field of HIV medicine. Second and third year internal medicine residents rotate through the clinic on a monthly basis and are supervised by experienced HIV specialists.

In addition, internal medicine residents may participate in The Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project. Over the last 5 years, internal medicine residents have participated in the preparation, curriculum and development of The Tanzania Project. As part of an infectious disease rotation, resident physicians have traveled to Arusha, Tanzania with the rest of the volunteer team. Activities there include clinical work in HIV and medicine centers, home based care, participation in academic seminars and clinical research. Many faculty members of Huntington Hospital’s Graduate Medical Education department have participated in the Tanzania Project as well, supervising American and Tanzanian house officers and providing clinical support in the clinics.

The Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project offers house officers the opportunity to see first hand the clinical, socioeconomic and cultural challenges of working in a developing nation. Faculty and residents of the internal medicine program have participated in the scholarship exchange program sponsored by The Phil Simon Clinic and have welcomed Tanzanian physicians to the hospital and the training program. Recognizing the importance of global medicine, the Graduate Medical Education department of Huntington Hospital has continued to support The Phil Simon Clinic’s work in East Africa.
