Curriculum Overview

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.

The Residency Program incorporates training in many areas, including:

  • Preventive medicine
  • High quality, cost-effective patient care
  • Cultural diversity
  • Communication skills
  • Biomedical ethics

Comprehensive Inpatient and Outpatient Experiences

The 4+1 schedule provides for a separation between inpatient and outpatient experiences, enhancing the education in both settings.

Inpatient rotations include the general medical floors, intensive care units (ICUs) and specialty divisions. Under the supervision of the full-time faculty, residents participate in daily rounds on each unit. Responsibilities include:

  • Completing patient evaluations
  • Developing treatment plans
  • Performing procedures
  • Writing all patient orders
  • Responsibility for the ongoing care and monitoring of patients in the 20-bed medical intensive care unit and the 10-bed cardiac intensive care unit
  • Working with an interdisciplinary team including social services, case management, nursing, wound care, and nutritional support staff

The outpatient curriculum offers ambulatory care experiences in the primary care clinic, private office practice settings, and specialty clinics. Categorical Medicine residents have a full week at their longitudinal continuity clinic every fifth week, at which:

  • Every resident is assigned to an outpatient primary care team supervised by attending faculty physicians.
  • Each resident is assigned a panel of patients to carry over the entire residency training period.
  • Residents maintain continuity and establish strong relationships with their patients over the three years of training.

This experience provides residents with an understanding of the full range of care and support services available to patients. Our program prepares residents for the complexities of healthcare delivery in today’s world.

Maimonides Medical Center complies with federal and city laws and orders prohibiting discrimination in employment. Such discrimination includes race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, handicap, marital status or sexual orientation.

Program Requirements

  1. We sponsor H1B and J1 visas if necessary. No visa type is guaranteed. We require your Step 3 results by the NRMP Match date to ensure an H1B visa can be issued in time for a July 1 start date. 
  2. We do not have strict minimum USMLE/COMLEX score requirements; however, we do consider both scores and number of attempts.
  3. For international graduates, we do not require U.S. clinical experience, but it is strongly favored.
  4. We prefer candidates who have graduated from medical school within the last three years, but we will consider more than three years from date of graduation with commensurate clinical experience in the intervening time.
  5. Applicants must designate their interest in either the Preliminary or the Categorical Internal Medicine Program, as we do not accept applications to both programs from the same candidate.

 Important Dates for 2021-2022

  1. Applications are accepted from September 29 to December 31, 2021.
  2. Invitations to interview will be sent in October 2021 through December 2021 via email.
  3. Interviews will be scheduled for October 2021 through January 2022.

Interview Day
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.
