Internal Medicine Residency Program Director Message
Dear Prospective Candidate:
Welcome to the Montefiore Medical Center Wakefield Campus Internal Medicine residency website. I hope that you find it informative and useful. Having been involved in the resident selection process for many years, I am aware of how difficult it can be. Hopefully, these pages will make the process a bit simpler for prospective applicants.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Montefiore Medical Center Wakefield Campus is now affiliated with Albert Einstein College of Medicine, beginning July 1, 2012. At this time, the medicine program includes 73 residents at the R1, 2 and 3 levels, and is fully accredited by ACGME. We offer our residents broad clinical training, in order to provide them with sufficient background to practice either primary care internal medicine or enter one of the various subspecialty areas. We have a full-time/part-time staff of 35 attending physicians, representing general internal medicine and all subspecialties. These dedicated clinicians, many of whom are actively involved in ongoing scholarly activity, are readily available to assist you through the intense experience of residency training.
Over the past decade we have had a consistently high ABIM pass rate, achieving 100% many times. More importantly, we have produced physicians who are confidently able to handle any clinical situation. Many of our graduates contract us after they have gone into practice to thank us for the high-quality training they received at our hospital. Each year we are faced with the task of selecting a group of candidates from an applicant pool that frequently comprises more than 3,000 applicants. We continue to seek well-qualified residents who will uphold the tradition that we have established.
For further information please see the “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQ’s) page, which has been carefully designed to address topics about which most prospective residency candidates are concerned.
