During the Preliminary Medicine Year residents will rotate on a variety of services.
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.
