Department of Medicine Residency Programs

NorthShore University HealthSystem offers a three-year categorical Internal Medicine residency, a preliminary year Internal Medicine program and a Transitional Year program.  Our combined programs have 3 chief residents, 35 PGY-1 trainees, 17 PGY-2 trainees and 17 PGY-3 trainees.  Both our Internal Medicine categorical/preliminary year and Transitional Year programs achieved the longest possible ACGME accreditation length with no citations.

Categorical Internal Medicine (16 positions)  

This foundation year in our three-year Internal Medicine program is geared to provide a mix of inpatient and outpatient internal medicine training.  Core rotations include general medical floor rotations at Evanston and Glenbrook Hospitals and one block of emergency medicine and ICU. Outpatient medicine training includes dedicated clinic weeks throughout the year.

Preliminary Internal Medicine (9 positions)

In preparation for further specialty training, preliminary Internal Medicine residents are provided with core internal medicine training through both inpatient and outpatient rotations.  Elective time and choices enables the resident to individualize curricular needs.  Each intern completes one block of emergency medicine and one block of ICU as well as general medical floor rotations at Evanston and Glenbrook Hospitals.

Transitional Year (10 Positions)

The Transitional Year program is for trainees who desire a medicine-based transitional year in preparation for future specialty training.  Core rotations include general medicine floors at Evanston and Glenbrook hospitals, an ICU block, an emergency medicine rotation, and an ambulatory rotation which is typically spent in an outpatient practice primary care office.  A wide variety of electives are available to complement training for future specialties.
