Competency-based Objectives of Training

The ACGME competencies listed below are achieved through a required set of rotations, a didactic curriculum based on the Blueprint of the American Board of Internal Medicine, scholarly activity, simulation, programmed learning modules, and a self-tailored set of electives.
