Residency Training

Residency training within the Department of Medicine at IU School of Medicine encompasses every aspect of internal medicine and offers various tracks to best suit the trainee’s needs. The majority of graduate medical education training is through the Internal Medicine Residency Program or the Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency combined program.

This department is renowned for interventional gastroenterology, specifically endoscopic ultrasound and cardiology, and has made significant contributions to the field of echocardiography and implantable defibrillators. Among the department’s most famous achievements, Larry Einhorn, MD, a faculty physician in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, discovered the cure for testicular cancer and is the single top expert in the field for that disease.

Within this rich clinical environment, the Internal Medicine residency programs offer considerable flexibility and choice in training to help each individual achieve specific career goals. Trainees interested in becoming physician scientists can apply for the board-approved research pathway.

In collaboration with other IU School of Medicine departments, the Department of Medicine offers a Transitional Year Residency Program for graduate medical education students wishing to further explore career paths before selecting a subspecialty.
