Our current third year reside​nts

Categorical Program

We have 16 PGY1 Categorical positions (NRMP Program Code: 1063140C0). Our categorical interns and residents come from medical schools across the country and are a tight-knit group motivated by care of the underserved and a robust clinical experience. We have been on a modified 4+2 block schedule since 2015. The block schedule affords increased ambulatory experience as interns, greater exposure to a panel of continuity patients and increased flexibility for individualized schedules. 


 

A typical categorical intern schedule is listed below:

  • Inpatient wards: 16 (including 4 weeks at Stanford)
  • ICU: 8 weeks
  • Night Float: 5 weeks
  • Subspecialty Electives: 7 weeks
  • These electives are broken into 4 weeks of Core Medicine and 3 weeks of Mastery electives. The Core Medicine electives are the big eight: Cardiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hematology/Oncology, Infectious Disease, Nephrology, Pulmonary and Rheumatology. The Mastery electives are rotations that help augment your growth as a physician in more specialized areas such as palliative care, psychiatry, social medicine, TB/Refugee clinic, research and more.
  • ED: 4 weeks
  • Ambulatory: 8 weeks
    • The ambulatory blocks are two weeks in length and in addition to time spent caring for a continuity panel of patients, also include time in subspecialty ambulatory clinics. Each intern will have ambulatory experiences in Endocrine and Rheumatology, and will choose among other experiences like Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, HIV clinic, Dermatology and more.
