The Department of Medicine Residency Curriculum Committee, made up of attending physicians, chief residents and senior residents, regularly evaluates and updates the residency curriculum. Its goal is to present the house officer with the opportunity to acquire the breadth and depth of knowledge to assure competence in the practice of general internal medicine. The curriculum prepares physicians for the demands of modern medicine as well as for the ABIM certifying examination.

Call Schedule

All house officers are on call at least every fourth night when assigned to inpatient medical floors or intensive care units. They are responsible for making their own call schedules. This schedule must be given to the chief residents two months prior to the start of each rotation.
