The core internal medicine curriculum is governed by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) mandates. The curriculum for the UH IM 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 core UH rotations and UH electives. Most ambulatory clinic rotations include subspecialty ambulatory experiences.
- Intern year with 20 weeks of ambulatory rotations with clinic; PGY-2 year with 26-28 weeks; PGY-3 year with 24-26 weeks.
- 6+2, X+Y Schedule
- 2-week Fall vacation, 7-day Winter vacation, 2-week Spring vacation
