First-Year Resident

Majority of the first year is devoted to inpatient medicine. The PGY-1 resident functions as the primary physician for his/her patients. Working closely with senior residents and attending staff, the PGY-1 is responsible for the development and implementation of each patient's care plan. In addition to inpatient service at all associated hospitals, he/she spends one month as the Night Float, one month in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU), one month as Jeopardy and one to two months in electives. The first year resident can also get a Night Float call in his Elective and Jeopardy Months. The first year resident begins his/her own continuity care clinic, which meets one-half day weekly during the entire year and takes precedence over all other responsibilities.

Second-Year Resident

The focus shifts during the second year of residency to a more supervisory role. The resident serves as the leader of a patient care team, which includes two or three PGY-1 residents and two to four medical students. Approximately five to six months are spent in supervising medicine inpatient services including one month of night float. During the PGY- 2 year a resident has the oppurtunity to choose the hospitalist track which would allow the resident oppurtunities for invasive procedures, preceptorship with practicing hospitalist and leadership exposure with senior hospital administration.  The continuity clinic continues to meet on a weekly basis for one-half day per week. 

Third-Year Resident

The continuity clinic continues throughout the PGY-3 year. The largest block of time (five to six months) during this year is spent at the resident's discretion in electives such as Endocrinology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Heart Station, Hematology - Oncology, Infectious Disease, Rheumatology, Anesthesiology and Radiology.  All PGY-3 residents are required to rotate on Ambulatory, Internal Medicine Service-Consults, MICU, Cardiology, Nephrology and Night Float services. 


All electives provide both an inpatient and outpatient focus. Development of expertise in a wide range of procedural skills for use in general practice is also stressed. The Internal Medicine Residency program does not allow away rotations.
