Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine

The Residency Program in Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine trains exceptional general internists to provide care to marginalized and underserved populations. With a focus on community-oriented primary care, our program offers trainees innovative, patient-based and learner-centered education through:

  • Comprehensive clinical and curricular experiences in inpatient and ambulatory medicine
  • Behavioral medicine
  • Clinical epidemiology
  • Clinical reasoning
  • Community-oriented primary care
  • Global health and human rights

Side-by-side with faculty, our residents provide care to an indigent urban and immigrant community at the Montefiore Comprehensive Health Care Center (CHCC), a federally qualified community health center in the South Bronx.

With mentorship and role modeling from a faculty dedicated to the program's mission, residents participate in community and health center-based advocacy, service, and research projects to improve the health of our patients.
