We offer incoming residents three career tracks:

Categorical 3 Year Residency Track
This track provides residents the opportunity to pursue their personal academic goals while satisfying the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine. This is the standard three year residency, which consists of general medicine inpatient & outpatient experiences. Categorical residents are trained in managed care, administration, quality improvement, hospital epidemiology, drug utilization review, medical error prevention, and medical outcomes research. Additionally, the residents are exposed to subspecialties such as cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, pulmonary/critical care, infectious diseases, hematology/oncology, rheumatology, endocrinology, and allergy-immunology. The residents have access subspecialty research and electives during their training.

Research/Internal Medicine 5 Year Combined Track
The physician research track is designed for candidates primarily interested in pursuing a career in research. It is an integrated program that combines training in research with training in clinical internal medicine. It is a 5 year tract, where first two to three years are dedicated to research work, followed by two years of residency training. Throughout the research block, 10% of time is dedicated to outpatient ambulatory clinic. The residents are paired with a research mentor, and your work and progress will be reviewed regularly. Mentors are selected based on your pre-identified research interests. Each mentor will provide access to research equipment and resources, professional development in the form of seminars and scientific presentation and will help develop your skills in competing for extramural research dollars. The coursework will lead to a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Science, and will focus on clinical and genetic epidemiology, pharmacology and medical outcomes, among others.

Preliminary Medicine 1 Year Residency Track
This track is for medical graduates desiring strong internal medicine training prior to assuming a residency in specialties such as neurology, dermatology, radiology, etc. The one year internship is rich in inpatient general medicine, cardiology, nephrology, hematology/oncology and critical care, and establishes key competencies in care of very ill patients that will be of great value during a future career in a variety of specialties.
