The curriculum is designed to meet the guidelines established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and its Transitional Year Residency Review Committee.

This education includes monthly rotations in inpatient medicine, intensive care units, emergency medicine and ambulatory medicine. This schedule is organized according to a curriculum that is primarily driven by educational need and not by departmental service needs.

The curriculum includes regular teaching conferences during Fundamental Clinical Skills (FCS) months, multiple weekly interdepartmental subspecialty conferences and a core curriculum of general internal medicine topics during the inpatient medicine months.

The schedule is organized into 13 four-week blocks.
