Who We Are & Resident Testimonials


Special Tracks / Curriculum

Below are short summaries and videos of the educational tracks here in the University of Connecticut Internal Medicine program. Click here to view more in depth summaries of the tracks on the GME website.


Refugee Curriculum 

This is a special 6-month curriculum that all residents are welcome to participate in put together by Dr. Levine. Her overall hope is to transform residents’ thinking about patients seen and provide a unique learning opportunity about refugee health. The course reviews epidemiology, changing politics, domestic and overseas screening, immunization, TB, enteric infections, chronic diseases unique to refugees, trauma/PTSD, women’s health, asylum evaluations, advocacy and more. 


Health Equity Track

The mission of the Health Equity track is to train the next generation of clinicians committed to caring for disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. The curriculum focuses on developing knowledge and the toolsets needed to address these health inequities in the clinical setting, leading to becoming well-versed in medical and social conditions common to domestic vulnerable populations.In accordance with the ACGME’s CLER Pathways to Excellence and as part of our curriculum in social determinants of health and health equity, the Health Equity team provides information related to equity and disparities on a weekly basis to accompany our ambulatory Yale Office Based Medicine curriculum.  When applicable, each week  community resource/tip to address health care inequities is also provided.


Clinician Educator Track

The Clinician-Educator Track at UConn’s IM Program is designed for residents who envision a career in academic medicine. It provides future educators with the opportunity to develop the skills required to become clinician-educators, role models and mentors for younger generations of physicians. 

 


Primary Care Tracks

The goal of this pathway is to expose residents to true outpatient general medicine in a variety of settings such as academic, urban, and private practice. In addition, the track is structured to provide the additional skill sets needed in outpatient medicine. This allows residents to appreciate the full spectrum of care that occurs in the community, from chronic disease management to acute illness or injury. Residents can gain an appreciation of the multi-generational patient population while learning effective means for counseling on smoking cessation, weight loss, and many other issues that require behavior modification. Evidence-based medicine, adherence to guidelines for care, and routine screening tests are all stressed as important adjuncts to comprehensive care. Rotations will allow residents to experience medicine in different outpatient environments such as urban community health centers and suburban primary care offices.


Research Track

While we provide all residents with the opportunity to engage in scholarly activity, the UConn Clinical Research Track is designed to prepare outstanding and highly motivated IM residents for a career in academic medicine and clinical research by providing them with dedicated opportunities to develop clinical research skills during their residency training. This track is limited to three residents per year. Residents in the track will complete a mentored clinical research project over the course of their residency and meet specified research training requirements, including completion of the certificate program offered by the Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science. The ultimate goals are for the residents to present one or more abstracts at national/international meetings and publish a manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal. The Clinical Research Track has three main components: clinical research courses, a longitudinal seminar, and mentored research.

 


Osteopathic Recognition

In 2016, the UConn Internal Medicine Program was granted official osteopathic recognition by the ACGME. Prior to this, the program had a “dually-accredited” ACGME/AOA program. Residents in the track will be fully integrated into the categorical internal medicine residency with additional curriculum focused on integrating the osteopathic philosophy into patient care as well as utilizing skills in osteopathic manipulative techniques. Residents of the track will rotate with an osteopathic primary care physician in the community, attend biannual educational sessions held in Massachusetts through the affiliation with NEOMEN-OPTI, have have an opportunity to present scholarly activity. An additional educational stipend is available for those residents in the track accepted to present scholarly work at the national ACOI meeting. Graduates of the track will be eligible to sit for both ABIM and AOBIM boards.
