The resident will also gain experience in teaching and research. The resident will be integrated into patient care activities at multiple different hospitals within the CAMC network throughout the year. Upon completion of the PGY2 in internal medicine, the resident will have achieved a level of expertise in adult internal medicine to function as a clinical specialist within a multidisciplinary team, to achieve Board Certification in Pharmacotherapy, and to become a leader within the profession.
