Internal Medicine Residency



The Internal Medicine residency offers a high quality academic program complemented by a uniquely supportive learning environment. Faculty members are easily accessible to trainees and faculty mentors are available for support and career guidance. Outside electives provide curricular flexibility for residents interested in broadening their medical experiences. Graduates can choose to pursue careers in primary care internal medicine or to continue with fellowship training in one of the medical subspecialties. The faculty provides guidance for both job placement and the fellowship application process.

Daily teaching sessions include morning report, Chief’s Rounds with the program director, attending rounds and noon conference. The noon conference schedule includes a board review program, subspecialty conferences and a monthly journal club. Medical grand rounds are held weekly and feature well-known speakers from a variety of Boston teaching institutions. Internal medicine residents develop their own primary care panel of patients in one of several outpatient clinics available for ambulatory training. During ambulatory rotations, in their second and third year of residency, house officers receive training in related specialties such as dermatology, gynecology, ophthalmology and geriatrics.
