Preliminary Medicine Year

We offer 6 preliminary medicine positions each year. Our preliminary interns are fully integrated into our intern class and we treat them as members of our residency family. Their schedules are similar to our categorical interns' schedules except that they do not have ambulatory blocks (as described in the "block model" description) and they do not have continuity clinic. Instead of a continuity clinic our preliminary interns staff our urgent care clinic, which provides a broad exposure to a variety of general medical problems that complements their inpatient experiences.
