The Northwell Health/Mather Hospital Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program is a 36-month training program designed to address the unique aspects of ambulatory medicine.
Our program has a class size of 3 residents each year. The program’s small size promotes a congenial, family like atmosphere where residents are provided with the unique opportunity to help shape the program’s curriculum and experiences.
Each academic year is divided into 26, two-week block rotations that highlight both inpatient and outpatient experiences in internal medicine. The program tailors the ambulatory experience by adding time to several relevant rotations and offering expanded exposure to women’s health, mental health, chemical dependency unit, urgent care, and wound care/hyperbaric medicine. In addition to the 16 weeks of medical floor time, PGY-1’s have two-week rotations with cardiology, gastroenterology, infectious disease and endocrinology.
Our mission is to develop well-rounded physicians, who are prepared to deliver the finest patient-centered care.
