Categorical Internal Medicine
The Categorical Program is a traditional three-year curriculum for education in the specialty of Internal Medicine. Residents progressively assume more responsibility through training years, and upon completion, are fully prepared for practice or subspecialty training. Each resident has a continuity clinic both at the VA Medical Center and JMH. Individualized certification through the Clinical Investigator Pathway is also an option.
Preliminary Internal Medicine
The Preliminary Year Program strives to provide broad exposure to internal medicine in a single academic year. The PGY 1 resident in this track is fully integrated into the medical service and offered the same educational and clinical opportunities as first year residents in other tracks. Preliminary residents do not have continuity clinic. Traditionally, trainees pursuing careers in ophthalmology, dermatology, neurology, radiology, anesthesia, and rehabilitation medicine at Jackson training programs choose this pathway.
Combined Program in Internal Medicine/Pediatrics
In cooperation with the pediatric service, we offer a Combined Internal Medicine / Pediatrics program, a four-year program that leads to board eligibility in both medicine and pediatrics. Residents are fully integrated into the program of both departments. Med-Peds residents have their own continuity clinics encompassing full range of patient care in one location, supervised by core ambulatory faculty from both disciplines. Special areas of interest for Med-peds residents at our institution include community advocacy, transitional care and Global Health and Social Medicine.
