Preliminary Track

The Internal Medicine Residency Preliminary Track provides residents bound for training in other specialties with a broad and intensive exposure to Internal Medicine. The curriculum for residents completing a preliminary year is similar to other first year IM residents. Ample elective time allows the residents to prepare for specialty training or to expand their knowledge in focused areas of internal medicine.

We only offer preliminary positions to applicants that are applying to the UVMMC advanced programs of Radiology or Dermatology. After completions of the first year, Preliminary interns will then continue their training at the University of Vermont in their chosen field.

Applicants interested in Neurology Residency at the University of Vermont should only apply to Neurology and will have a full preliminary year scheduled on the Internal Medicine services.

Applicants interested in Anesthesia Residency at the University of Vermont should apply only to Anesthesia and will have 6 months scheduled on the Internal Medicine services and 6 months on the General Surgery services.
