The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Botsford Hospital is a three-year program that satisfies the basic curriculum for residency training by the American College of Osteopathic Internists (ACOI). Internal medicine track interns rotate through general internal medicine services as well as several subspecialty services in addition to satisfying the requirements of the intern as described by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). During the 2nd and 3rd years, residents complete a rotation in all required medical subspecialties, with additional months in the critical care complex rotation and approximately 6 months set aside for elective rotations.
The overwhelming majority of our candidates enter the Medicine Track Internship, complete their General Internal Medicine training and become board eligible in three years. At our institution, this track particularly emphasizes the skills to practice as a highly qualified "hospitalist" or, alternatively, to seek additional subspecialty training at Botsford or elsewhere. Our graduates also consistently report that, where their path has taken them into primary care, their training has served them in that capacity as well. Fellowships at Botsford following Internal Medicine training include Cardiology, Pulmonary/Critical Care, Gastroenterology, Nephrology and Infectious Disease, each additionally extending the skills and experience of the trainee.
Internal Medicine has gained Initial Accrediatation as of 2015, under the Single Accreditation System agreement. The program has accreditation status and site has been visited with zero citations. Botsford’s Internal Medicine program is committed to meeting program requirements, as specified by the ACGME.
