About the Residency


Competency-Based Curriculum


Our curriculum encompasses all the ACGME competencies in the context of the Art, Science and Business of Medicine.


The Art of Medicine curriculum covers a broad range of topics in the areas of ethics, communication, cultural and professional competency, and end of life care, to name a few. The format for these conferences include open discussions and case based presentations. Five conferences are delivered each year where residents and fellows in the department of medicine actively engage in discussions.  

The Science of Medicine curriculum consists of core clinical topics in the areas of General Internal Medicine, Allergy and Immunology, Cardiology, Pulmonary, Nephrology, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, Hematology, Oncology, Endocrinology and Infectious Disease.  These talks are delivered on an annual cycle during noon conference at both our sites by subspecialty faculty.  A separate core conference series for the ICU takes place during the rotation.

The Business of Medicine curriculum includes topics related to career options in medicine, healthcare law, coding/billing, managed care and consultative medicine, logistics of starting a practice, and employment terms and contracts etc. Approximately five conferences delivered by faculty and area experts are conducted each year.
