PGY2 Internal Medicine Residency

The PGY2 Internal Medicine Residency is an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Accredited Program structured to provide training for motivated individuals interested in specializing in the care of adult internal medicine patients. The resident will be an integral part of the multidisciplinary teams providing patient care in a variety of medicine and specialized medicine areas. Residents are actively involved in all aspects of patient care. Residents will focus primarily on acute care rotations throughout the year. There will also be an opportunity to spend time in clinics providing care to ambulatory patients. Clinic opportunities include community health center, anticoagulation, population health, hepatology, and specialty. Residents will participate in precepting and have the opportunity to complete a teaching certificate program through Rosalind Franklin University. Residents will participate in committees and complete P&T related and performance improvement projects. Residents spend the majority of time at their home hospital; however, they will travel to other hospitals for individual rotations and as needed for meetings.
