Internal Medicine Residency
In the Internal Medicine Residency program in NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine, we believe that the best way to prepare physicians for any career in medicine is to serve culturally and socioeconomically diverse patient populations in a variety of clinical settings.
We offer residents unique training experiences at three types of hospital systems in New York City—private, municipal, and federal. At NYU Langone Medical Center in midtown Manhattan, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, NYC Health + Hospital/Bellevue and Gouverneur campuses, and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System, residents encounter a broad range of patients and diseases. This experience prepares you for a rewarding career in clinical and academic medicine.
The Department of Medicine has more than 1,200 faculty affiliated with our subspecialty divisions. We are currently training more than 221 internal medicine residents and boast a diverse research portfolio, supported by $60 million in annual funding.
Our dedication to excellence in teaching and patient care, high-quality research and residency programs, and outstanding Department of Medicine faculty combine to prepare our residents for any field they choose.
Graduates of the Internal Medicine Residency program have a greater than 95 percent pass rate for internal medicine boards and have their choice of the most sought-after fellowships and internal medicine jobs.
Approximately 80 percent of our graduates go on to participate in a fellowship program, with a match rate greater than 98 percent. The other 20 percent become general internists, many in hospitalist positions in either academic or community medical settings. Many graduates go on to become academic faculty, department chairs, and clinical leaders in hospitals throughout the United States.

How to Apply
We participate in the National Resident Matching Program®, also known as The Match®. We only accept residency program applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®), run by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
Our program does not have a minimum score requirement on the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®); however, the average score of our applicants is 227. You must pass the USMLE® Step 1 before applying and USMLE® Step 2 before graduating from medical school and starting residency.
The deadline for Internal Medicine Residency program applications is October 1 each year. Interviews for postgraduate year 1 (PGY-1) positions take place each November through January for positions beginning in July. If you are selected for an interview, we will contact you via email.
Those who are selected for an interview are eligible to participate in any of the Internal Medicine Residency tracks that we offer; however, two tracks—the clinical investigator and the physician–scientist tracks—require secondary applications and additional interviews. You can rank any of the Internal Medicine Residency tracks that interest you.
We accept international graduates and sponsor J-1 visas for applicants who have graduated within the past five years and have at least one year of clinical experience practicing direct patient care in the United States. Observerships do not qualify. You must have Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates® (ECFMG®) certification at the time of application.
