The Department of Medicine at Maimonides offers a fully accredited residency in Internal Medicine. The program has a total of 78 positions (26 at the PGY-1 level) in a categorical, three-year residency, leading to certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Up to 18 positions are available in a one year Preliminary Internal Medicine program for those pursuing specialty training in other areas. All medicine residents have the opportunity to train for the full three years of the program pending successful performance each year. Three chief residents are appointed annually to support the activities of the training program and to serve as teachers and mentors for all junior and senior residents.
In addition, the department offers five positions in medicine/pediatrics and 41 fellows in the medical subspecialties of cardiology, geriatrics, pulmonary diseases/critical care medicine, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology and infectious diseases.
Nearly all graduates of the medical residency training program take the American Board of Internal Medicine Certifying Examination. The pass rate of former medical residents is excellent. Our residents have achieved outstanding careers in both community hospital and academic settings.

All divisions of the Department of Medicine are under the direction of full-time staff actively engaged in teaching and research.
