This is achieved via a rigorous program of clinical rotations, scholarly activity, didactic conferences, web-based learning modules, and a flexible, wide-ranged set of electives.

In addition to acquiring a solid foundation in inpatient and ambulatory general medicine, residents in our program also have rotations in cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, infectious disease, nephrology, hematology/oncology, rheumatology, endocrinology, neurology and geriatrics. They may also choose from electives in non-Internal Medicine specialties such a ophthalmology, radiology and anesthesiology.
