Curriculum (IM)

Most residents participate in the Categorical Internal Medicine Track which prepares residents for general internal medicine practice, hospitalist careers, or fellowship training.  Two residents per class may elect to instead do the Primary Care Track which focuses on a curriculum designed to prepare residents to enter outpatient-focused careers.
