Curriculum & Schedules
The Department of Internal Medicine offers four residency training opportunities. These include:
- Categorical Internal Medicine: This is the traditional three-year residency leading to board certification in Internal Medicine. Our Categorical Internal Medicine residency offers excellent preparation for a career in primary care, all of the subspecialties in Internal Medicine, hospitalist medicine, medical research and medical education.
- Medicine Pediatrics: A combined four-year program leading to dual eligibility in both medicine and pediatrics.
- Preliminary Medicine: This track is designed to build the generalist competencies needed for successful careers in Radiology, Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Neurology, PM & R, Ophthalmology and Radiation Oncology.
- Clinical Scientist: With special focus on clinical, basic or outcomes research.
As mentioned throughout this section, the department was one of 21 programs in the United States to be selected for the Educational Innovations Project.
This project, created by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) aims to re-design and improve internal medicine residency education.
Our selection in this project gives us the opportunity to develop innovative educational programs and to provide data on both resident and patient outcomes under the EIP.
