Because the delivery of medical care is changing at a rapid pace, the priorities of training have to be able to adjust to the realities of medical practice in the 21st century. Keeping patients well and out of the hospital, and partnering with them to provide the best evidence-based care, are critical.

Healthcare is increasingly being delivered in the outpatient setting with more complex patients needing well-trained internists who can manage their care. Our program will prepare you well for these new realities with a focus on the ambulatory settings of both general medicine and its subspecialties.
