Primary Care & Social Internal Medicine Residency

Ambulatory Curriculum: The Core Curriculum

The unified core curriculum of the Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine Program is the foundation of our rigorous program, and is delivered during ambulatory block months during the 3 years of residency. 

The core curriculum begins with an introductory month of Medical Spanish and Community Medicine seminars early in the PGY-I year, and over the next three years features required and selective courses in significant topics in General Internal Medicine and Community and Social Medicine. The courses are generally composed of bi-weekly two hour seminars, each of which requires considerable reading and pre-seminar problem-solving. The core curriculum encompasses the following subjects and courses: 

  • Introduction to Community Medicine
  • Medical Spanish 
  • Clinical Epidemiology 
  • Women’s Health
  • Musculoskeletal Medicine 
  • Liberation Medicine, Health and Human Rights 
  • Concepts and Controversies in Screening and Prevention 
  • Global Health
  • Health Policy
  • Addiction Medicine
  • Advanced Clinical Epidemiology: Focus on Health Disparities Literature
