Curriculum

Curriculum

The goal of our Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train leaders in healthcare by providing comprehensive and outstanding clinical training to our residents. Upon completion of training, physicians possess the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for successful practice of general medicine or further subspecialty training. These attributes for success include humanism, professionalism, clinical skills, management skills, and commitment to lifelong learning.

Our program’s clinical experiences take place at state-of-the-art training facilities.

We offer an innovative 4:1 rotation schedule that consists of 10 (4-week) inpatient rotations throughout the academic year with a 1-week outpatient rotation between each inpatient rotation.

Our didactic experiences complement the clinical experiences to ensure that house staff acquire the essential clinical skills, confidence, and independence required for delivering the highest quality medical care to patients with diverse types of acute or chronic diseases.

We offer special tracks, with three PGY-1 options:

  • Categorical, including Primary Care, and Inclusion Health tracks (30 positions per year)
  • Preliminary (10 positions, PGY-1)
