The internal medicine curriculum at Maimonides fulfills the requirements of the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine (RCC-IM) of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The Internal Medicine Residency Program is a three-year ACGME accredited program based around a 4+1 block system – 4 weeks of inpatient rotations followed by 1 week of ambulatory medicine. Our comprehensive curriculum is focused on engaging residents as adult learners with the aim of producing competent, curious and compassionate internists. The curriculum offers broad and balanced experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings, which prepare the graduate for a career in general internal medicine or further training in any of the medical subspecialties.
By the end of the three-year program, graduating residents leave as expert practitioners in the care and treatment of major acute and chronic diseases.

Important Dates for 2021-2022
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview season will be entirely virtual. Your session will typically include presentations from the Program Director and the Chief Residents, greeting from the Chair of Medicine, interviews with faculty members, as well as with Chief and current medicine residents. Each prospective applicant will have time to meet virtually with the Program Director. There will also be virtual gatherings with our current residents (both preliminary and categorical) so candidates can learn more about our residents’ experiences at Maimonides. Depending upon the state of the ongoing pandemic, the Program may offer optional in-person open houses for candidates to see the facility and meet with residents. These sessions, if offered, will not have any bearing on the candidates’ applications or ranking by the Program.
