Program Descriptions: Internal Medicine

The Categorical Internal Medicine Residency Program has an intern class of 46 and a total program size of approximately 128 residents. For the 2023-24 academic year, we transitioned to a block schedule format that separates inpatient and clinic experiences. We strive to provide an experience that allows for individual learning goals to be met, by virtue of a concentrated experience in a particular area of interest.

The core experiences of the Residency Program involve General Inpatient Medicine, Ambulatory Medicine (including continuity clinic with your own panel of patients), Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Geriatrics, Neurology, Palliative Medicine and Addiction Medicine; there is an opportunity to rotate in all medicine subspecialties.

The Medicine Residency Programs at the University of Connecticut are committed to educating well-rounded physicians who will achieve excellent standards of medical care and personal and professional ethics. Whether you are in our one-year or three-year training program, we emphasize the following core values:

  • Knowledge acquisition and lifelong learning skills
  • Effective and sensitive communication
  • Commitment to professionalism
  • Practice of evidence-based medicine
  • Effective utilization of multidisciplinary systems of care
  • Self-awareness, introspection, and openness to feedback
