The combined internal medicine and psychiatry residency is a five year training program run jointly by leadership of the internal medicine and psychiatry residencies and administratively through the internal medicine department.

The sixty months of training is split evenly (thirty months each) between the two departments in a manner which permits for trainees to be board eligible in both specialties upon completion.

Generally speaking, residents of the internal medicine and psychiatry program operate under the same rules and guidelines as residents in the internal medicine program. All residents are expected to be familiar with these as outlined in the IM resident policy manual section of this website.


Selected exceptions and other situations idiosyncratic to the combined program are detailed below.
