Department of Internal Medicine

R-1 Year Schedule

The initial year of training focuses on acute care and hospital management of patients.  Rotations during this year are predominantly hospital-based and include ward, night float and ICU blocks.  While residents in the first year do not have continuity clinic as part of our novel curriculum, a 6-week Ambulatory elective allows exposure and introduction of outpatient medical management.  An ambulatory didactic curriculum supports the educational program throughout the year ensuring ambulatory medical knowledge is made available to residents in every year of residency.
