Internal Medicine Residency

Categorical Internal Medicine

From start to finish, our program’s curriculum is designed to optimize clinical experience,  autonomy, and resident-faculty mentorship at every step of the way.

During the first year, residents obtain exposure to core subspecialties, critical care medicine, and general internal medicine. Residents are supervised by senior residents and faculty, yet retain primary responsibility for patients. Within this first year, we empower residents to develop proficiency in treating a wide spectrum of common medical problems encountered in the inpatient setting. Rotations within the first year typically include:

  • General Inpatient Medicine
  • Ambulatory Medicine
  • Continuity Clinic
  • Cardiology
  • Critical Care Medicine
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Gastroenterology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Nephrology
  • Night Float (General Medicine & Cardiology)

As a second-year resident, responsibilities shift toward providing experience in consultative medicine. Second- and third-year residents take on supervisory roles, working with both first-year residents and medical students.  Second year residents obtain additional elective time to explore specialties of interest while continuing to develop their clinical reasoning in general internal medicine.

As a third year resident, the focus is on refining skills of clinical knowledge, junior mentorship, leadership, and preparing for the next stage of one’s career – whether that be entering a career upon residency graduation or carrying on to fellowship.

Senior residents gain additional experience in the intensive care units.  In addition to maintaining their ambulatory continuity clinics, second and third year residents also rotate in:

  • Electives
  • Endocrinology
  • Geriatrics
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Infectious disease
  • Neurology
  • Pulmonary
  • Rheumatology
