    The Department of Medicine’s commitment to resident education is reflected clearly in the opportunities, encouragement and support provided for resident research.
    The PGY-1 research rotation includes supervised experience in computer-assisted literature searching, an introduction to epidemiology and biostatistics and instruction in critical review of the medical literature. Residents select an area of interest and present their findings at the annual Department of Medicine Resident Research Symposium.

    A number of research projects initiated in the PGY-1 year have culminated in presentations at national meetings or publications in peer-reviewed journals.

    The Department of Medicine encourages all residents to participate in scholarly activity and we are especially proud of their research achievements.

    Subspecialty Electives

    Elective rotations offer additional opportunities for residents to explore areas of special interest, broaden their horizons and meet their individual learning objectives.

    Internal medicine subspecialty services provide residents with valuable experience as consultants, and most subspecialties include substantial experience in the outpatient setting. Interdisciplinary experiences are offered in a number of areas including women’s health, HIV, medical aspects of transplantation, musculoskeletal disorders, palliative care and medical ethics. Elective rotations in pediatrics, gynecology, psychiatry, orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation and general surgery offer opportunities for residents to master the cognitive and procedural skills in these areas. Residents can take an away elective outside of the Einstein Health Care Network including a rotation abroad.
