Internal Medicine Residency Program

Welcome! Thank You For Your Interest in our Program!


We offer four different types of positions:

  • Three year Categorical Internal Medicine positions (18 each year)
  • Three year Primary Care Internal Medicine positions (4 each year)
  • Two year ABIM Research Pathway positions linked to University of Rochester fellowships (2 each year)
  • 1 year Preliminary Internal Medicine positions (6 each year)

If you visit Rochester you will find a program that blends:

  • academic excellence
  • exceptional bedside clinical teaching
  • a supportive, collegial, and fun learning environment
  • thoughtful innovations designed to meet the changing needs of future internists
  • a wonderfully livable, low cost, moderate-sized city brimming with cultural activities and minutes away from a broad range of outdoor activities in New York's Finger Lakes region.

We emphasize:

  • patient and family-centered care and teaching
  • careful collection of clinical data through bedside interview and physical examination
  • exploring psychological and social contexts of health and illness
  • clinical decisions based on evidence and grounded in high-quality, safe, and cost-effective patient care.


We look forward to meeting you!
