Program Description

The Medical Research Track Residency Program is an established residency program within the Weill Department of Medicine that aims to recruit and train the next generation of leading physician-scientists. The curriculum provides rigorous training in clinical medicine and allows trainees to reach subspecialty training by their third year (PGY3). Individuals who match into this program are also matched into the fellowship program of interest within our Department. As a "fast track" or research pathway resident, the full training commitment includes an additional two years to be added at the end of subspecialty clinical training for the sole purpose of research and establishing an academic career.
