Electives for IM Residents


Internal medicine residents at OHSU have a 3-4 week elective block during their PGY2 and PGY3 years of training.  Residents may choose to fill this time with either local, national, or international clinical and research experiences.

On-Campus Opportunities

On-campus opportunities range from general internal medicine and sub-specialty consult experiences to rotations in other OHSU or affiliate departments (such as radiology or orthopedics).  Many residents who are pursuing sub-specialty training will decide to use their elective month to conduct research.  A list of all faculty contacts for research in each medicine sub-specialty is available to current residents.  Residents have been extremely successful in their research endeavors, often presenting at national meetings and publishing their work in peer reviewed journals.
