Internal Medicine

The Family Medicine Residency Program's curriculum is designed to meet the foundational requirements of family medicine training as set by ACGME and ABFM. In addition, our program includes training and clinical exposure to specialty areas that enrich the experience of our residents and expand their skills sets.

Combining strong inpatient and outpatient training sites enables residents to diversify their competency and widen their future employment possibilities as well as fellowship options.

After the first year of training, residents gain progressively more time in the ambulatory setting. They continue building and managing their patient panels through one-on-one encounters as well as through population health and quality improvement initiatives. In addition to the block schedules, our residents participate in longitudinal training in nursing homes, newborn nursery and on the Mama and Baby Bus which provides comprehensive prenatal care in a mobile unit in a predominantly LatinX community with a disproportionate percentage of uninsured residents.

Additional training is provided with a rotation on the Behavioral Health Inpatient Unit at UM Capital Region Medical Center.
