Our program gives you a ton of clinical experience. Rochester General Hospital is a 528 bed hospital with the 11th busiest emergency department in the country. The hospital has been named one of the top 100 best cardiac centers in the country. We have a new Ambulatory Center, a new state of the art MICU, and a dedicated CCU – enhancing clinical care and exposing residents to cutting edge medicine. Our graduates are superbly prepared for the next step in their career. New Fellowships in Cardiology, Hematology Oncology, GI, ID, Palliative Care and Clinical Informatics are in full swing. Nephrology, and Pulmonary Critical Care are slated to begin in July 2022.
Our system of 3 resident reports (overnight, intern and senior reports) means you are not lost in the crowd: you get individualized teaching throughout your residency. Our reports teach evidenced-based medicine and critical evaluation of the medical literature. We have a weekly Academic Half Day: 4 hours of truly protected time for team based learning, didactics, board review, and wellness. We are also excited about the success of our new Academic Hospitalist Service. Our Case Report Curriculum walks residents through the process of writing up and submitting a case report for publication. The new fellowships at RGH will stimulate teaching and scholarly activity. There is statistics support and ample opportunity for research success even if you have no research experience.

Preparation for the Next Phase of Your Career

We offer a point of care ultrasound program, Major program, Academic Half Day and Case Report Curriculum all are examples of innovation. We have successfully implemented Observation Unit and Hospitalist electives. There is opportunity to create new electives; one resident worked to create an informatics elective last year and it has been successful.

How to Apply
ERAS is a service which transmits residency applications, recommendation letters, Dean’s Letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from medical schools to residency program directors using the Internet.
Applicants to the Rochester General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program are required to apply to the program using ERAS
For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program strongly encourages all applicants to complete a supplemental ERAS application, offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants also will be required to complete the MyERAS application.
The additional information collected will help our program staff learn more about applicants’ medical education journey, including more meaningful information about work, volunteer, and research experiences, and will help us better identify applicants who fit our program environment and mission.
This supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between September 1-30.
