Internal Medicine Residency Program
The Department of Medicine at Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital has offered training programs for residents and students for more than 50 years. Our program reflects a deep institutional and departmental commitment to medical education in a supportive, community-based environment that provides a full spectrum of care to a diverse patient population.
As the university hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore consistently breaks ground with innovative treatments, procedures and approaches to patient care, with a focus on producing stellar outcomes and raising the bar for medical centers in the region—and around the world.
The Six Core Competencies
We prepare graduates to achieve the six core competencies acknowledged as the standards of physician performance:
- Patient care. Providing effective, compassionate, appropriate care.
- Medical knowledge. Demonstrating and applying knowledge of general medicine and developing the patterns essential to becoming a lifelong learner.
- Professionalism. Developing behaviors that reflect a commitment to ethical practice, an understanding and sensitivity to diversity, and a responsible attitude toward the profession.
- Interpersonal skills and communication. Developing and demonstrating skills that will enhance patient care and professional relationships.
- Practice-based learning. Developing skills in using scientific evidence to investigate, evaluate and improve patient care.
- Systems-based practice. Developing an understanding of the systems in which healthcare is provided and developing the ability to apply this knowledge to optimize healthcare.
Residents are likely to achieve these goals in our moderate-sized program that puts a premium on faculty-resident relationships. Our educational philosophy reflects a firm belief that personalized mentoring in the context of collegial, mutually respectful relationships provides the foundation for successful, gratifying educational accomplishments.
We are proud that our Categorical (3-year) residents achieve these goals, move on to elite fellowships or internal medicine careers (both primary care and hospitalist), and achieve their goals with exceptional morale and with a spirit of camaraderie. The education of Preliminary residents is seamlessly integrated into the overall program. Preliminary and Categorical residents can expect to develop close relationships with their peers and with faculty, and to receive the personal mentoring necessary for achieving their individual goals. We are committed to ensuring that each preliminary resident acquires the basic skills and competencies to confidently embark on a subspecialty career.
