Acting Internship

The best way to check out our residency program is to do an Acting Internship (AI). This will give you an opportunity to work closely with residents from all three years of training.

You will be an integral part of a team of resident and attending physicians who provide the care for patients on our Family Medicine Inpatient Service and in our clinic. Over the course of a month you will have ample opportunity to inquire about rotation specifics and life in the residency.
