Graduate Career Choices

Throughout training, we work with each resident to establish career goals and create a plan that fosters each individual’s career objectives. From rotation schedules to research opportunities, we work together to ensure our graduates are competitive in both fellowship and job markets.

Our longitudinal Business of Medicine curriculum encourages residents to begin thinking about long-term career options at the start of residency. We facilitate continuous career planning through faculty mentorship and regular focus group meetings for specific career paths.

Our residents are well-equipped and prepared for subspecialty fellowships as well as careers in academic medicine, hospital medicine, and outpatient primary care. Over the past five years, nearly half of our graduates have successfully pursued subspecialty fellowships and over one-third have chosen careers in hospital medicine. The remainder have chosen careers in academic general medicine and primary care.
