Residency Program in Internal Medicine

We are an acute care hospital located in the South Bronx of New York City minutes away from Manhattan. Our facility has an inpatient capacity of 347 beds, with 120 beds allocated for the Internal Medicine department.

Medicine department has approximately 12,000 discharges per year. Our Emergency Department’s Level 1 Trauma Center is one of the busiest in the United States. We are designated stroke center. Consequently, our residents are exposed to a vast range of pathology ensuring that they are adequately prepared for their future, which ever path they choose. 

Our Resident Program is the largest within the facility with 116 total residents, of which 100 are categorical. Our Rotations are broken down as:

Floor rotations are made up of 8 teams lead by an Attending, 1 PGY2 and 3 PGY1s along with support from medical students from St. Georges University. Nights are 2 week long rotations that cover Floors or ICU. Our Floors are equipped with a 40 bed Telemetry unit, which acts as an ICU step down, unique to this is that we have ventilated patients who are out of the ICU. Our ICU is a 23 bed unit which has been praised for our Acute Stroke Management.
We offer a wide range of rotations in sub-specialties like Cardiology, Critical Care, Nephrology, Endocrinology, Geriatrics, Gastroenterology, Infectious diseases, Pulmonary, Palliative, Rheumatology and Neurology; lead by diverse attendings who come from all over the world. We also have a Ventilator Rotation where residents are trained about Non-Invasive and Invasive mechanical ventilation and oversee extubations within our telemetry unit. We have a dedicated Research and Peer Based Learning rotation- allowing residents the opportunity to work on scientific publications and quality improvement projects. Other rotations include Practice-based learning which enhance the teaching ability of residents, Clinic rotation where residents rotate through various non-medical specialties such as Orthopedics and Gynecology, Dermatology and Anesthesia electives.
We have many educational activities and didactic sessions which include daily morning reports, noon conferences, weekly Grand Rounds, and Morbidity/Mortality presentations. We have a newly renovated and comprehensive SIM lab with training for airway management, central line placements, and emergency codes. All these are in preparation for what can be expected on our floors and we are proud that our residents will leave our program more than comfortable with these procedures. Additionally, we have recently incorporated an ultrasound module where residents can become proficient in point of care ultrasound with plans to expand during the upcoming years.
Upon Graduating our residents have often gone to various fellowship programs which recently includes Cardiology, Endocrinology, Geriatrics, Hepatology, Infectious Disease, Rheumatology, Pulmonary/Critical Care, Nephrology and Palliative Care. Many of our residents go on to become Hospitalist and Primary Care providers.
Residency at Lincoln Medical Center is not all about work. Though being large group of diverse residents we are closely bonded. We plan various social activities including game nights, picnics, and multiple sporting events. We have planned breakfast after every Grand Rounds as well as an end of rotation Lunch. Outside of the hospital we plan an Annual Residency Picnic at Central Park, a yearly Holiday Party in December, and our annual Graduation which is a large Gala like event in June.
Good Luck and we look forward to seeing you during Interview season!
