The Internal Medicine Program is mindful of all ACGME and New York State work hours regulations. We do not assign 24 hour calls and instead, utilize short call and night float designations. All categorical residents will attend their continuity practice for one half day each week, except while on night float or vacation.
Our residents will be assigned to take part in performance improvement projects. We also stress the importance of the role of physicians as teachers and encourage all of our residents to participate in medical student and community education initiatives.
*Course scheduling is subject to change by the Program Coordinator. Please refer all program inquiries to the Program Coordinator.

The Core Competencies

We have designed our curriculum around these competencies, with the goal to train competent, compassionate, effective and efficient physicians.
