CATEGORICAL MEDICINE TRACK
Our program is fully accredited by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and we interview qualified students from LCME (MD)and COCA (D0) accredited Medical Schools.
The Carilion Clinic – Virginia Tech Carilion Internal Medicine program trains residents to become competent, caring, knowledgeable, engaged physicians able to manage patients as a member/leader of the patient care team. Our residents develop outstanding professionalism and clinical skills, equipping them to succeed in primary care or hospitalist medicine, or in the pursuit of further sub-specialty training.The categorical track provides core inpatient and critical care rotations, along with ample opportunities for elective and ambulatory blocks allowing the resident to tailor his or her curriculum to meet personal career objectives. Our ambulatory rotations provide experience in office-based orthopedics and sports medicine, otolaryngology, podiatry, pain medicine, dermatology, adolescent health, allergy, office gynecology, and care of the underserved at the Bradley Free Clinic. There are opportunities to develop a high degree of competency in the performance of all core internal medicine inpatient and ambulatory procedures.All residents are assigned to a faculty advisor who works closely with him or her throughout their residency. Residents may also identify a “self-chosen” mentor during the residency period to further specific professional development goals, if desired. For residents interested in rural internal medicine, the program offers a funded elective block in rural southwest Virginia in a private practice setting.
PRELIMINARY MEDICINE TRACK
This one-year track provides the training required before entrance to an advanced residency program, such as anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, ophthalmology, physical medicine, or radiology.
The curriculum is the same as for the categorical track with the exception that the resident will not have a continuity clinic. However, our Preliminary residents do obtain ambulatory general internal medicine experience when they are assigned to our “work-in clinic” during their ambulatory rotation. All preliminary medicine residents are assigned a faculty advisor and may also choose a faculty mentor, if desired.
