Resident selection overview

Each year, we select 17 residents for our program. The academic year begins on July 1. Applicants are selected for interviews based on several criteria, including:

  • Personal standards of faculty members and current residents
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Letters of recommendation
  • USMLE/COMLEX scores

Interviews take place from October through January. This year, interviews will take place virtually.

If selected to interview, you’ll meet with residency leadership and spend time with current residents. You’ll get in-depth information about the program and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Medical student rotations

We participate in the Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO®) program. Fourth-year medical students have the opportunity to extern with our internal medicine department. We encourage all qualified applicants to visit the department. And we invite visiting students to participate in daily conferences.

Ruchi Patel, DO

When choosing a residency program, I was looking for an academic center that would provide exposure to a wide range of pathology, allow for interaction with different specialties and give me the opportunity to care for a variety of complex patients. More importantly, I was looking for a program that had camaraderie amongst the residents, supportive leadership, and an enjoyable work environment. When I rotated at Geisinger Medical Center as a visiting medical student, I quickly realized that Geisinger’s internal medicine residency was just that. Not only is there an emphasis on education, but there is also a family-like environment. I am grateful to have the opportunity to train at a place surrounded by exceptional, hardworking people and am confident that the training I am receiving will prepare me for my future endeavors.”
