Fellowship Placement

Sara Gianfagna, MDI was so impressed by the people at URMC. I felt that they were truly a collaborative group, across specialities, and within their own department. I also knew that due to the number of fellowships URMC offers I would get a well rounded residency experience and good training to prepare me for fellowship (and I could possibly stay at URMC if I wanted!). "

Class of 2022

Over the past 15 years, about two-thirds of our residency graduates have gone on to fellowship training in a subspecialty of internal medicine, while the remaining third have pursued careers in general medicine, either as general internists or hospitalists. While we are glad that many of our residents stay in Rochester for fellowship, we are also extremely proud of our residents' success in matching into fellowships at outstanding academic institutions throughout the country. Here is a link to our fellowship matches from the past few years. The table below summarizes the fellowship placement results for residents applying for positions to begin from 2011-2020.
