The Women’s Health Track affords residents an opportunity to gain additional proficiency in providing preventive, maintenance, and specialized medical care to women. In addition to the required aspects of the internal medicine residency program, the program is structured through a series of electives throughout the three-year period. An array of medical and gynecological subspecialties, including Women’s Health, Cardiology, Rheumatology, Dermatology, Infectious Disease, Mental Health, Breast Clinic, Reproductive Endocrinology, and Urogynecology are available. Furthermore, proficiency of in-office gynecological procedures such as colposcopy, endometrial biopsy, and ultrasound can be attained under the supervision of a gynecologist. Weekly continuity clinic with an emphasis on women’s preventative health care is also available. An opportunity for research in gender specific health with regards to female disease prevention and health promotion is encouraged. The flexibility of the Women’s Health Track allows the resident to develop her interests over the course of the program, while gaining comprehensive training in general internal medicine.
