Residents In This Section


Pathways allow residents to develop a specific academic interest during their training, and are open to both Categorical and Primary Care Track residents. We currently offer 4 pathways:

  • Medical Education - developing skills in educational theory, design, and practice.
  • Leadership - combining prior experience / education (MBA or JD) into clinical pratice
  • Global Health - exploring global health issues and culminating with a global health clinical experience
  • Research - the ABIM research pathway for residents interested in a career with an 80% committment to research

Residents match into one of our two tracks, and then explore their interests in these pathways at the end of the PGY-1 / beginning of PGY-2. Most residents choose not to enter these defined pathways, and instead we work with them to develop their career interest in the direction of their choice.
