Internal Medicine Rotations

Within the framework of the “6 + 2” block schedule, residents have broad exposure to the breadth of Internal Medicine, both inpatient and Ambulatory. The largest percentage of time is spent in General Internal Medicine, both on the floors and in the outpatient setting, but with a robust exposure to all of the major subspecialties of Internal Medicine.
