Internal Medicine Residency

Preliminary Internal Medicine

If you are applying to our Preliminary Internal Medicine program, know that we make every effort to ensure that the Preliminary residents’ curriculum mirrors that of the Categorical Interns.

The one difference is that all Preliminary residents are guaranteed an elective block in their intern year, which may or may not be the case for the Categorical residents, who get most of their elective time in their PGY 2 & 3 years. Preliminary residents are part of our 4+1 curriculum with a continuity ambulatory experience. Please see our first-year resident experience under “Preliminary Rotations”.
