Preliminary Year

Our preliminary year is for people who want high quality and meaningful training in internal medicine prior to beginning a core specialty program.

Over the past decade we have prepared preliminary residents for anesthesiology, neurology, dermatology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, ophthalmology, psychiatry, radiology, and occupational medicine.

As a preliminary resident, you will rotate through the same clinical experiences as categorical residents, but have more elective time (depending on specialty and career path).

You can tailor your experience to your needs, including specialty electives (e.g. dermatology, radiology, ophthalmology) that you design with your mentor.

In addition, if you wish, we can help you engage in research projects within the department or your chosen specialty.

A significant number of our preliminary residents stay within University of Cincinnati Medical Center for their core programs, and this represents a tremendous advantage with regard to comfort with system and colleagues.
