Integrated Residency Program

Purpose

 

The Integrated Residency Program is an educational alternative in which a student not only has the opportunity to complete fourth year rotations but also to learn more about the responsibilities as a resident in the specified program, providing additional focus to outstanding medical students in the field of medicine they wish to enter. The program does not shorten the duration of training and is not an acceptance into a residency program.

There is a scholarship available upon successful completion of the program and it is based upon individual performance. Integrated residency is separate from the match process; the agreement to participate in the program is not legally binding in regards to your future residency program. To enter residency program, you must still register for ERAS and NRMP, and apply to program(s) in which you are interested in the spring match.

Departments participating in the integrated residency program vary from year to year. Historically, the following departments have taken part on a somewhat regular basis:


·           Anesthesiology

·           Emergency Medicine

·           Family and Community Medicine

·           Medicine

·           Med-Peds

·           Neurology

·           Orthopaedic Surgery

·           Pathology and Anatomical Sciences

·           Psychiatry

·           Radiology

 

Description of Expected Experiences/Curriculum

 

  • All departments will require one to two elective courses as part of their program criteria.
  • Concentrated year of combined medical student and residency experiences.
  • Introduction to field of interest as traditionally experienced by first-year residents.      
  • Exposure to clinical/residency experiences as assigned by department
  • Exposure to research in field of interest (if designated by department)

 

Guidelines and Qualifications for Interested Medical Student Candidates

 

  • Integrated resident candidate must be deemed in good standing, not on academic probation, and on track for graduation from medical school.

 

  • All required rotations must be completed at a Satisfactory or Honors level.

 

  • The progress of the selected candidate will be measured, monitored, and shared in the following manner:  Notification of the candidate of progress in December with verification of completion of all components prior to graduation in May of the fourth year of medical school.

 

  • Each participating department may set prerequisites and course information designed to fit their program; however, all program requirements are overseen by Medical Education and the Associate Dean for Student Programs.
