We pay residents’ expenses when they present presentations or posters. This is in addition to reimbursed meetings outlined in the resident benefit section.
Our residents are very active in organizations such as the American College of Physicians. Residents also serve on multiple hospital committees.
Most faculty offices are located on campus or within a five-minute walk from the hospital. Off-site rotations at accredited institutions may be approved based on the needs of the individual resident.
We have an active International Medicine program with many residents choosing to do a charitable mission month abroad.
We offer 25 paid vacation days, plus time off for meetings, taking required examinations, and interviewing for fellowships. In-house moonlighting opportunities are available for 2nd- and 3rd-year residents.
New areas added to our curriculum include Evidence-Based Medicine, Women’s Health, Sports/Occupational Medicine, End of Life Care, and the Core Curriculum lecture series. The latter is a group of multidisciplinary lectures teaching the following: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Communication and Interpersonal Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice.
The computerized medical record system is fully available in the Internal Medicine Clinic, the medical library, resident office area, and hospital floors. Full Internet access is available in most areas, and online search programs are provided free of charge.
Our fellowship placement is excellent. Our graduates have chosen fellowships in institutions including Indiana University, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio State University, University of Washington, Duke University, University of Cincinnati, and the University of Kentucky, among others.
The residency provides $5,000 for resident business expenses to offset the cost of textbooks, educational meetings, posters, moving expenses, and housing. Some of this (e.g., housing) may be taxable income, per IRS regulations. Meals (valued at approximately $275 per month) are provided free of charge in the hospital cafeteria.
