About the Program
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Westchester Medical Center offers an excellent academic environment, the highest case mix in the country, teaching and research opportunities, and multiple fellowship opportunities. Westchester Medical Center was one of only 17 programs in the country selected by the ACGME in Phase 1 of the EIP (Educational Innovations Project) to redefine medical education for Internal Medicine. The program has also earned consecutive 5 year accreditations from the ACGME.
The EIP curriculum provides the skills necessary to succeed in a complex health care environment within a culture of patient safety and continuous quality improvement. Residents actively pursue supervised clinical research and are provided the time to participate in national conferences. The Internal Medicine house staff is among the most published in the country with dozens of articles, abstracts and posters each year.
Residents can expect to spend time conducting rotations in the Adult Primary Care Center, emergency room and subspecialty clinics. Clinical training is enhanced by daily comprehensive academic instruction consisting of conferences, seminars, oral reports, Grand Rounds and staff and resident presentations. Independent research is expected of all residents. Numerous opportunities are available in both basic and clinical research, and residents are instructed in research methodology and statistical analysis.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Westchester Medical Center is extensive in both scope and opportunity, with fellowships and specialization available in several areas of emphasis.
