Fellowship Training and Match

The Department of Internal Medicine 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 assists residents with securing fellowship training.

From 2012-2016, 55% of our graduates pursued fellowship training, 92% matched obtaining subspecialty fellowship positions in many of the finest programs nationwide (see below). Forty-eight percent 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, 43% of graduating residents remained in general internal medicine, taking positions as hospitalists and primary care physicians at University of Iowa and across the country.
