A letter from Program Director Joseph M. Deutsch, MD
Our mission is to recruit outstanding physicians who will provide exceptional healthcare for the growing communities of Kent and Sussex County Delaware. In July 2022, we welcomed our second class of Internal Medicine residents. Along with our inaugural class, they are a perfect fit for our program, hospital and community. In October 2022, we applied for ACGME accreditation for our first IM fellowship program- Hematology/Oncology. Our goal is to train physicians of the future who can deliver healthcare that is effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered. I am proud of how much we have accomplished as a program in a very short time.

Bayhealth Internal Medicine, Milford
The new Bayhealth Internal Medicine residency practice, which opened July 2021, is located at 804 N. DuPont Blvd. in Milford, Delaware. Built in 2018, our office was renovated in 2021 to meet the needs of a residency program practice. With 12 exam rooms (including a procedure room), behavioral health office, and plenty of natural light, it’s a fantastic facility for both patients and residents. The gratitude we have felt from patients makes our practice a place you will find joy each day.
Milford is located in a physician shortage area and our practice provides care for an underserved population. Southern Delaware is one of the fastest growing areas in the entire country. Both retirees and young families have moved in large numbers to Kent and Sussex counties in the last decade. When fully staffed in 2024, the practice will add more than 20,000 patient visits to this community per year. The impact we are already making on this community is tremendous and will continue to grow each year.
