Welcome

Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency Program Curriculum

Faculty and resident have created an overall curriculum map for the educational experiences provided throughout the three years of Vanderbilt Internal Medicine Residency. Our goal in creating this educational map is for all residents, fellows, and faculty to have the same mental model or shared expectations of each educational unit.

Here is the full outline of the resources on this IMRPC website.
