Education is a cornerstone of the University of Cincinnati Department of Internal Medicine’s tripartite mission.
Our undergraduate and graduate medical education programs are marked by innovative, active learning experiences and mentored by engaging and dynamic faculty members.
Many of our programs have won regional and national recognition, including the:
- Society of General Internal Medicine Practice Innovation award,
- Associate of American Medical College Readiness for Reform (R4R) Innovations Challenge Award, and
- Ohio American College of Physicians Gold Medal Award for excellence in clinical and research abstracts.
We have been site visited by a sitting governor, two members of the U.S. Congress and representatives from multiple academic centers around the country.
Our faculty members have been influential participants in the national dialogue regarding the transformation sweeping medical education today.
In addition, our graduate medical education programs have consistently been recognized nationally in the top quartile of training programs based upon American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certifying exam pass rates and the consistent awarding of five-year, and, most recently, 10-year cycle length by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The cumulative three-year pass rate (for first-time takers) on the ABIM Certifying Examination has averaged in the top quartile for the various tracks. In addition, the ACGME has consistently recognized the internal medicine residency training programs in the Top 5 percent of programs nationally.
The department's categorical, medicine-pediatric and clinical scientist programs recruit superb candidates.
The quality of the individuals accepted through the residency match over the past few years has also been outstanding. The current house staff comes from a wide geographic range of medical schools and the department has been successful recently in recruiting underrepresented minorities.
