Welcome from the Program Director
Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency programs at the University of Rochester-- we are extremely proud them. Our residents learn by seeing a diverse patient population supported by wonderful faculty in an academically rigorous, collegial, and fun environment.
We offer three-year positions in Categorical Internal Medicine, two-year categorical positions in the ABIM Research Pathway, and Preliminary Internal Medicine positions; each of these programs is described in detail in this website. With the Department of Pediatrics, we also share responsibility for the Combined Medicine-Pediatrics Program. Information regarding applying to any of these programs can be found on our Applicant Information Page. Explore this website to begin to learn about what makes Rochester truly unique.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
Categorical Internal Medicine Program
Twenty new residents enter our categorical program each year. Our rich learning environment attracts outstanding residents from across the country. Currently,our categorical program includes graduates of 25 U.S. medical schools in 16 states. More information about current residents can be found on our Current Residents Page.
After three years, our residents enter highly competitive subspecialty fellowships or outstanding practice opportunities. Since 2001, 74% of our graduates have entered fellowships; 26% have chosen general internal medicine. Many graduating residents choose University of Rochester fellowships. Others accept outstanding fellowships elsewhere. Details of our fellowship placements to begin 2011 and 2012 can be found on our Fellowship Placement Page.
ABIM Research Pathway
We offer two research pathway positions each year. Individuals accepted into these positions spend two years in the Categorical Medicine program and then move directly into a University of Rochester research focused subspecialty fellowship in their chosen field. Questions regarding the research pathway should be addressed to the director of that program, Laura Calvi, MD.
Preliminary Internal Medicine
Our preliminary internal medicine year is identical to the categorical medicine first year except that preliminary residents do not have a weekly general medicine continuity practice and do have more flexibility in their elective choices.
