Fellowship Training and Beyond

Our residents have many choices available to them following their residency training. The Department of Internal Medicine excels in placing residents in subspecialty training in competitive fellowships here and around the country. Residents who elect to go into practice directly find rewarding opportunities available to them within UI Health Care, in all parts of the country, and in exciting places globally.

The department is committed to developing an individualized career path for each of our trainees. Each resident is given career guidance throughout residency by the Program Director, Associate Program Directors, and faculty mentor(s) of his or her choice. In addition to semi-annual individual meetings with an Associate Program Director, a designated faculty member assists residents with securing fellowship training.

From 2018-2022, 69% of our graduates pursued fellowship training, 100% matched obtaining subspecialty fellowship positions in many of the finest programs nationwide (see below). 50% of these graduates chose to stay at University of Iowa for their fellowship training, attesting to resident satisfaction with the educational environment, hospital system, and collegiality. Over the past five years, 26% of graduating residents remained in general internal medicine, taking positions as hospitalists and primary care physicians at University of Iowa and across the country.
