The department’s two residency programs (Internal Medicine and Medicine-Pediatrics) have seen positive results in regards to test scores this year. All residents take an in-training examination each fall and this year’s scores boasted the best collective performance the programs have seen in over a decade. Over 27,000 residents took the exam this year, and each of the PGY classes performed better than the national mean for their respective training levels.
