Our program is designed with a 4+1 week block schedule for all categorical interns and residents. A block consists of 4 weeks on an inpatient/elective service followed by 1 week of ambulatory medicine. Rotations are divided into primary patient care on medical wards, ambulatory care and intensive care units (MICU or CCU) over the course of 3 years of training including one month in the Emergency Department and various electives.

Below are rough estimates of what to expect over 3 years of training, which does take the latest ACGME training requirements into account:
