In your last year as a resident, you assume leadership responsibilities while providing highly efficient, attentive care to a variety of patients.
This year puts you in clinical situations similar to those you will experience in your second year, but much more will be expected of you.
You will be assigned to a supervisory position in a critical care unit, on night float or on your internal medicine inpatient unit. In this role, you will be responsible for teaching, management and oversight of medical students and first- and second-year residents.
By the end of this year, you will be prepared to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine’s Certification Examination, enter a variety of practice situations in general internal medicine or go on for fellowship training.
Over the past five years, more than 30 percent of our residents have matched to fellowships right here at UB. One in seven have entered practice or an academic career in our area after completing their residency. In all, nearly half our residents choose to stay in the Buffalo area — facts that testify to our quality of training and the level of satisfaction residents have with our region and its professional community.
Most modules are two weeks long, but range from one to four weeks.
