Urban Health Track Sample Schedule

The core internal medicine curriculum is governed by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) mandates.  The curriculum for the UHT differs from the categorical programs in that it prioritizes ambulatory experiences, minimizes intensive care unit rotations, and shifts as many subspecialty care experiences to the outpatient setting as possible.  The curriculum features the urban health rotations.
        

Sample Schedule 

Each rotation is 28 days long.
