Categorical Residency

The Categorical Residency is a three-year program dedicated to producing the finest clinicians and future leaders in internal medicine. The program focuses on the clinical skills, knowledge and humanistic qualities of the internist.  

The practice of clinical excellence, while utilizing a scientific thought process, is the central theme of our categorical curriculum. An evidence-based approach is emphasized both in the inpatient and the outpatient settings.

Through research projects, mentorship and extra-curricular activities related to two elective tracks, Global Health and Health Care Leadership participants in the Categorical Residency have numerous opportunities to pursue interests directly related to their specific career plans. The program challenges each resident with progressively increasing responsibility in a setting characterized by close faculty mentoring.
