As a program of 24 residents that intersects with the larger internal medicine residency, we are able to create a tight-knit community that supports and inspires each other.
"It’s a small family feel within the backing of a larger residency program; all of our co-residents and faculty are rooted in a similar moral valence; and the program is connected with so many people doing mission driven work!"

We support and encourage resident participation in scholarly work that meets their interests and career goals. All residents have the opportunity to attend a national conference and are assisted in submitting scholarly work for presentation. Residents can work with mentors from the Division of General Medicine and the Department of Medicine to engage in scholarly projects suited to their interests.
We define scholarly work broadly and encourage our residents to pursue what excites them most. Our residents have participated in academic work that includes research projects, qualitative interviews, perspective pieces, op-eds, creating clinical curriculum, and evaluating quality improvement projects.
