PGY-1

We prioritize the quality of your training as a physician from the minute you join our program.

During your crucial first year, you will receive close, direct supervision throughout your clinical training. Under the guidance of senior residents, chief medical residents, attending physicians and an assigned preceptor, you will develop numerous critical skills:

  • obtaining complete, pertinent and accurate patient histories
  • performing thorough, targeted physical examinations
  • planning diagnostic workups
  • instituting therapeutic plans, including writing appropriate orders and prescriptions
  • maintaining medical records in multiple electronic health records systems
  • communicating with other health professionals to ensure top-quality patient care
  • using print and electronic research resources

You will also begin to earn credentialing in key procedures and will take on supervisory roles with other residents and medical students.

At the end of each module, the attending physician will evaluate you on your performance in the six core competencies as recommended by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Attendings will also discuss your strengths and weaknesses with you at the end of each module.
