The Weill Cornell Medical College Internal Medicine Residency Program is distinguished by a unique combination of activities and opportunities. One of our core principles is that housestaff learn best through authentic responsibility. House Staff serve as the primary provider across all aspects of patient care.
We were recently recognized as an Apple Distinguished Education Program for our innovative learning platform using iTunesU and multimedia books. We seek to have your "brains on fire" learning medicine, asking questions, thinking critically about the evidence and always bringing it back to the individual patient in front of you. Intellectual curiosity is fostered throughout the curriculum, whether exploring basic science, translational medicine, clinical expertise, or the healthcare delivery system. Residents can customize their focus or try more than one area. The program strives to focus on the joy, meaning, and healing purpose of practicing medicine as what will sustain you, with attention to your wellness, your professional growth and personal development at the individual level. Mentorship is one-on-one to help each resident thrive.
