NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull has 57 Internal Medicine residency positions. Internal medicine residents spend the majority of their time at Woodhull, but also have educational experiences in the Cardiology Department at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and a Geriatrics learning opportunity at NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur, a long-term care facility. Some of the primary care continuity time occurs at community based health centers, located near the hospital in Bushwick, Williamsburg, and Greenpoint sections of Brooklyn. Woodhull is academically affiliated with New York University School of Medicine. Residents also serve as clinical teachers for medical students from St. George’s University.
Internal Medicine residents receive comprehensive training in primary care. Woodhull has been named a designated Patient Centered Medical Home, which provides the opportunity for residents to work in multi-disciplinary teams and to provide high quality primary care. Residents are educated by full-time faculty in all sub-specialties as well, and many graduates pursue fellowship training programs following residency.
Woodhull offers a number of additional unique learning experiences in the areas of Patient Safety and Clinical Research. Residents are actively engaged in the Housestaff Safety Council, a committee involved in many Quality Improvement initiatives. Faculty also mentor residents in developing clinical research projects and case presentations.
