Typical Resident Schedule

One unique aspect of the University of Illinois at Chicago Internal Medicine Residency Program is the large range of both inpatient and outpatient educational opportunities. Over the course of a three year residency in internal medicine, you will have the opportunity to rotate on the following offered inpatient services (locations are in parentheses):

  • Medical ICU (UIH/JBVA)
  • Cardiology/CCU (UIH)
  • General Medicine Wards (UIH/JBVA)
  • Internal Medicine Specialty Wards (UIH):
    • Liver
    • GI
    • Oncology
    • Hematology
    • Sickle Cell
  • Inpatient Infectious Diseases Wards/Consults (UIH)
  • Inpatient Neurology Wards/Consults (UIH)

In addition, we have the following outpatient/consult experiences:

  • Ambulatory Care (UIH/JBVA)
  • Consultation/Outpatient Services (UIH/JBVA):

    • Cardiology
    • Endocrinology
    • Geriatrics
    • GI
    • Hematology/Oncology
    • Infectious Diseases (JBVA only)
    • Renal
    • Pulmonary
    • Rheumatology
  • Off-Rotation Electives:

    • Sports Medicine (JBVA)
    • Anesthesia (UIH)
    • Echocardiography (JBVA)
    • Pain Clinic (JBVA)
    • Transplant Infectious Diseases (UIH)
  • Research Elective

In addition to the above, we also offer a yearly international medicine rotation through the Department of Infectious Diseases where residents have the opportunity to practice medicine in the Dominican Republic.

Every year, the chief residents coordinate a rotation request system by which residents can request consult services, a research elective or participation in our yearly trip to the DR, noted above. We attempt to accomodate all requests with a particular emphasis in providing residents with educational opportunities within their future subspecialty.

Below is a representative schedule of the average internal medicine resident at UIC over a three year residency:

All residents are given a total of four weeks of vacation every year, split into two 2-week periods. Vacation periods are requested in advance as part of our rotation request system and a significantly high percentage of all requests are granted.

Rotation Call/Shift/Float Schedules

As a result of recent changes in ACGME duty hours restrictions, interns no longer take admitting call during thier inpatient wards rotations. To adjust to the new duty hours rules, we have implemented both intern and resident admitting night shift and intern night float systems at both UIH and JBVA. These are often separate two week rotations which effectively eliminate overnight call during all rotations for interns and during non-critical care rotations for residents.

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.
