Why Choose Our Residency Program?

Dedicated Faculty

Our core faculty are all ABIM-certified, clinically active internists who dedicate at least 15 hours per individual, per week, to residency training. They will work with you closely, from direct observation and feedback at the bedside to advising you on your educational goals, patient care and scholarship. Many conduct clinical translational research and act as mentors to residents interested in doing the same.

We have made a commitment to have all general medicine faculty certified as medical educators through the UB/Royal College of Physicians Medical Educator Program. We also review and revise our curriculum on an ongoing basis, taking into account residents’ feedback, exam pass rates and rotation evaluation reports.

Cosmopolitan Training Environment

Our large program size and diversity of training sites give you wide-ranging experience delivering care. You will work as a part of collaborative health care teams and develop adaptable skills in large hospitals and small clinics throughout the Buffalo area.

We meet or exceed ACGME standards throughout our program, giving you a solid grounding in the core competencies. In addition, our electives, including research time, and diversity of training sites make our residents outstanding candidates for fellowships and clinical practice.
