As an internal medicine resident, you will obtain both the inpatient and outpatient experience needed to smoothly transition to independent internal medicine or hospitalist practice as a competent physician upon graduation. This program also emphasizes diversity of training. Each year, a number of our residents successfully obtain competitive fellowships. Over the past 5 years, graduates have obtained fellowship positions in:
- Pulmonary/critical care
