Internal Medicine Residency: Curriculum

ACGME Recognized for Innovation in Education

About Our Curriculum

Curriculum Highlights IM Graphic

The three-year categorical Internal Medicine program delivers a comprehensive, hands-on education that enables our residents to take an early and active role in patient care, while working side-by-side with experienced specialists. Every resident has a voice in the program, from providing day-to-day feedback to creating individualized career development plans with a faculty advisor.

We continually update and enhance our curriculum to provide the best possible training and patient outcomes. From 2005-2015, we participated as one of only 21 sites in the U.S. for the "Educational Innovations Project" sponsored by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Under this project, our curriculum served as a model for other institutions, centered around three focus areas:

  • Enabling residents to immerse themselves in a clinical setting by separating ambulatory clinic responsibilities from inpatient ward service rotations.
  • Supporting residents in quality improvement projects based on their clinical experience.
  • Encouraging residents to tailor their third year of training through an interactive evaluation and mentoring system.

Across our rotations and didactics, we maintain a well-earned reputation for our collegial atmosphere and supportive environment that fosters great patient care and learning.
