Internal Medicine Residency

Program Description

Each resident is assigned a faculty adviser who provides an introduction to the program and acts as career mentor. Residents begin their three year program with an intensive review of the core internal medicine specialties.

We have a robust Night Float system in all three years that we instituted in 2020, limiting the number of 24 hour calls in our program.

PGY-1 residents spend two thirds of their clinical activity time in an inpatient setting including on the medical floors and critical care units. Residents spend a third of the time in an ambulatory care setting at the outpatient continuity care clinic at the Jewish Renaissance Medical Center, women’s health center, early intervention clinic and the Roosevelt Rehabilitation Center. PGY-1 residents are on call an average of every fourth day. On call shifts end at 10 PM, except on Saturdays which is a 24 hour call. A typical PGY 1 resident will do 4-5 (24 hour call) shifts during the entire PGY 1 year.

PGY-2 residents are on call an average of every fourth day excluding Elective and Ambulatory Blocks. On call shifts end at 10 PM, except on Saturdays which is a 24 hour call. A typical PGY 2 resident will do 5-6 (24 hour call) shifts during the entire PGY 2 year.

PGY-3 residents are on call an average of every fourth day excluding Elective, Ambulatory, and Emergency Room Blocks. On call shifts end at 10 PM, except on Fridays and Saturdays which is a 24 hour call. A typical PGY 3 resident will do 10-11 (24 hour call) shifts during the entire PGY 3 year.

In compliance with ACGME guidelines, residents receive at least one day off each week on average and duties are limited to far less than 80 hours weekly.
