The ABIM Research Pathway of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at the University of Maryland is an ideal training environment for aspiring physician-scientists. The University of Maryland is the oldest public school of medicine in the United States and has a long history of advancing the science of medicine. Significant research centers at the medical center include the Institute of Human Virology, the Institute for Genome Sciences, and the Institute for Global Health, while the overall research portfolio at the medical center spans from basic sciences to the most cutting-edge clinical trials.
Prospective applicants should select the research pathway NRMP number in ERAS to apply. Immediately following submission of ERAS, candidates should complete the [http://www.umm.edu/professionals/gme/programs/im-residency/abim-research-pathway/supplemental-application supplemental application]. Applicants should include a letter from their research mentor as one of the four required letters in ERAS.
Applicants invited for interview will complete a 1.5 day interview to include meetings with internal medicine faculty and program leadership as well as subspecialty fellowship faculty and potential research mentors. The interview day is flexible, with the half day able to be scheduled for the morning or afternoon before or after the categorical internal medicine interview day. This interview day will also represent the subspecialty fellowship interview(s).  When using the NRMP system to rank, applicants may use the research pathway number or both the research pathway number and the categorical residency number. Prior to the match, the program will contact applicants to discuss whether they should use one or both numbers, as this is an individual determination for each applicant based on decisions by residency program and fellowship program leadership. The program may offer additional research pathway positions through the main categorical number.
