PROGRAM TRACKS

The University of Illinois at Chicago Internal Medicine Residency has specialized tracks that give interested residents a more focused residency experience.

The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency program is a three year, ACGME accredited program with teaching sites at both the University of Illinois Hospital (UIH) and the Jesse Brown Veterans Administration Medical Center (JBVA).

This one-year program is designed for individuals pursuing careers in other specialties. Residents in this program undertake a year of training that is identical to the first year of residency in the categorical program.

The Urban and Global Health (UGH) Track is geared towards residents who are interested in the care of underserved communities both in urban and global settings. This track provides the trainee with the focused experiences in underserved communities both locally and abroad, as well as the tools necessary to undergo a career in the field.

The Academic Internal Medicine (AIM) Track is for trainees that are interested in careers as generalists with an interest in research. This track will give the trainee exposure to public health as well as a clinical and translational research in order to prepare residents for a career in academic internal medicine.

The Physician Scientist Track allows residents to pursue training in internal medicine, with a strong emphasis on research, and a guaranteed position in one of our subspecialty research fellowships.

The first two years of training are the same as those of a categorical internal medicine resident with at least twenty months of direct patient care. If the resident plans to enter fellowship, then they will start their fellowship training in their PGY-3 year.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
