General Internal Medicine Fellowship

NYU Langone’s Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation offers a postdoctoral fellowship that supports physicians who are committed to careers in academic general medicine and who wish to conduct research focused on improving the quality, safety, equity, and effectiveness of care in our communities. The General Internal Medicine Fellowship prepares physicians for careers in health services and medical education research as well as leadership roles in general internal medicine.

Our division serves as an academic home to more than 500 general internists who are conducting research and educating the next generation of physicians, healthcare leaders, and medical educators. Our core mission is to transform care for diverse patient populations through excellence and innovation in research, patient care, and education.

General internal medicine fellows receive training and participate in research at the following locations:

Fellowship Highlights

The two-year General Internal Medicine Fellowship is designed for postdoctoral graduate year 4 physicians and above. Those who complete the program also receive either a MS in Clinical Investigation or a Master of Health Professions Education (funded through our fellowship, separate application required), gain experience teaching internal medicine residents and medical students, and practice outpatient general internal medicine at an NYU Langone clinical location. Other program highlights include the following:

  • professional development opportunities that support your career growth, including point-of-care ultrasound training (POCUS) and Education for Educators (E4E), a yearlong certificate course for clinician educators
  • our Summer Orientation Series allows you to familiarize yourself with the numerous opportunities available including Meet-the-Professor Sessions, interviews with clinical and administrative leaders, data tours, and site visits
  • a Weekly Integrative Seminar that provides opportunities to present your research in progress and generate discussion and feedback from peers and program faculty
  • a grant writing course that offers a practical overview of the grant application process, including selection of a research focus and appropriate funding mechanisms; development of effective collaborative and mentorship relationships; building a research team; and planning and writing the scientific components of a research plan and/or career development and mentoring plan
  • the opportunity to participate in an individual development plan (IDP) that allows you to be mentored in six core competencies, including conceptual knowledge, research skill development, communication skills, professionalism, leadership and management skills, and responsible conduct of research

As part of the General Internal Medicine Fellowship, fellows provide independent, outpatient clinical care that makes up 45 percent of their training time at one of several locations: NYU Langone Internal Medicine Associates, Bellevue, or VA NY Harbor Healthcare System locations in Manhattan.

Research Activities

General internal medicine fellows create and execute a mentored research project. Potential areas of focus include health systems research, obesity and other chronic diseases, health equity, and medical education. Fellows benefit from shared resources that include practice-based research networks, large observational databases, and a shared electronic medical record across a comprehensive academic medical system. You have access to a range of NYU Langone resources to support your research project, including the following:
