PGY-1 mentoring program

Career success begins with early mentoring and academic opportunities. Beginning in September of each intern year, we undergo a process to identify and best-fit mentors in residents' chosen specialties. The goal is to begin some scholarly work to help you be successful in securing an excellent fellowship, as well as to build a skill set needed for lifelong scholarly engagement.

Faculty are asked annually to submit proposals, then residents review the proposals and meet with faculty of their choice. Trainees then select their own mentors.

Structured assistance for securing fellowships

The Internal Medicine Residency has workshops every year devoted to career planning and fellowship applications. These workshops include subspecialty program directors and program administrators, as well as residents who have recently completed the interview trail. Our residency is very successful in matching in competitive fellowships. Our faculty is very active in supporting resident success in achieving each resident's fellowship of choice.

In addition, there are mock interviews available and a session on curriculum vitae preparation. Residents have advisers from the pool of core faculty, associate program directors, as well as academic mentors.
