On Friday, March 15, graduating medical students across the United States found out which residency programs had accepted them for their advanced medical training. Of those, 38 are the incoming interns in the UC San Diego Internal Medicine Residency Training Program.
The majority of the interns, 26, are beginning the categorical or traditional internal medicine training track, 6 are in the one-year preliminary medicine program, 4 are entering the Combined Medicine/Pediatrics program and 2 are entering the Physician-Scientist Training Program.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the interns in the entering class!” said program director Elaine Muchmore, MD (left).
“They will be coming to UCSD from all around the country. They have had unique and diverse experiences and will significantly enhance our current group of outstanding residents.”
Dr. Muchmore, professor of clinical medicine in the Division of Hematology-Oncology, is vice chair for education in the Department of Medicine.
