Please note that we are entering the second year for our program and are still in the process of enhancing our resident curriculums and rotations to be the very best. Our facilities are also in the process of preparing for the growing number of residents. Therefore, we are not able to offer third year medical student rotations in the Internal Medicine program this academic year. We will be interviewing in the fall once ERAS applications become available.
