Internal Medicine

Primary Care Track

Highlights:

We are excited to add a primary care track to our Internal Medicine program. 

– Focused didactics and mentorship with primary care focused faculty, including community field trips and specialty elective opportunities *gynecology, transgender medicine, addictions)

– Priority scheduling for outpatient focused elective in Dermatology, Endocrinology, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology and Nephrology.

– Additional exposure to GIM (General Internal Medicine) outside of your continuity clinic. At least 8 weeks spread over 2 years in 2-week blocks.  Opportunity to work in another clinic gaining mentorship, further exposure to more common outpatient concerns as well as general tips to a successful outpatient practice.

– Track still allows flexibility for careers in hospital and/or ambulatory setting, meeting all graduation requirements; additionally, sets you up well for fellowship applications in outpatient practices (Endocrinology, Rheumatology, etc).

– Potential for less ICU time because of increased electives in the above while still meeting graduation requirements.

The application process occurs during your R1 year for an opt-in for 2 year track embedded within the IMRS program
