The goal of the Internal Medicine Residency Program is to prepare physicians with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to provide patient care in Internal Medicine. Emphasis is on the humane application of scientific knowledge; preparation of graduates for continuing life long self-directed learning; the cost effective utilization of public resources; the responsiveness to needs of individuals and the community; and the highest standards of academic excellence and professional ethics.

The graduate will demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to provide independent patient centered care in multiple delivery settings in the specialty of Internal Medicine. Competence will be demonstrated in the following domains described in detail in the Program Requirements of the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism and Systems-based Practice.

The program provides flexibility in curriculum focus to allow achievement of each trainee's individual learning needs:

  • Ambulatory Primary Care. This physician will focus on care in the ambulatory setting with responsibility to health promotion and to the diagnosis and management of complex, usually chronic disease.
  • Hospitalist Physician. This physician's principal interest is in the quality and safety and complex disease management in the acute care environment.
  • Traditional Internal Medicine. This physician is interested in maintaining excellence in acute, chronic and extended care settings and in consultation to other specialties, serving as experts in the continuum of care for complex medical disorders.
  • Pre-Fellowship. This physician will be interested in further training in one of the subspecialties of Internal Medicine. Training will usually be similar to the Traditional Internal medicine focus. Additional experience is in the chosen subspecialty or related fields.
  • Academic Internal Medicine. These graduates will pursue careers where significant time is dedicated to roles as clinician educators or clinical investigators.
